My arms are sore, my shoulders are sore, my neck is sore, my back is sore, my fingers are burned....BUT, the stripes on the bottom of my sailor skirt are on!!! I spent about 7 hours today making bias strips for this particular stage of the dress, and then pinning and sewing on said strips. I forgot how much I hate making bias strips. Just like making pleats. Hate that step. But the effect is well worth it in my opinion! Now to go and take my cocktail....which consists of 3 Advil and 2 Tylenol!
Ooooh! And I found some great old buttons that are old gold around a blue THE EXACT SAME COLOR AS THE FABRIC!!!! I found them in my Grandma Iva's buttons that I have been keeping safe. Huzzah and away!!!
