Ugh. As you know, this dress has been on my “WIP” list for a long time. I was very excited to do a quick and easy dress. I am still new to sewing and thought this would be a good start. Today, I started working again on the smocking. I just can’t get it to look right. When I do get it to look right, I keep running out of elastic.
My last straw for this project was when I tried pulling the elastic to keep it tight and it broke. DARN IT! At this point, I tried it on. I needed to know if I should go on with it. It looks horrible on. I started to feel this project messing with my sewing mojo, so I decided to throw in the towel. It is a great pattern and I bet the perfect dress for someone else…but for now, I should stick with knitting.
