So I put aside the bustle for a little bit because my fingers were so sore from hand sewing. And I attempted to make This dress in a blue jersey.
Well I forgot to gather the front of the skirt so I tried to cut the ends to be a-line. Then I tried it on. HA HA. The 'simple a line skirt' was so tight that I almost didn't get it over my hips. After laughing so much I cried, I took of the monstrosity and put it in the scrap/to be made over pile.
Also I cut out some things last night to sew this week, now lets see if I get to do them :)
