These past six weeks have been difficult for me. It’s been a struggle to get up and go to work a lot of the time. This week will be my first year at my current job; my supervisor’s been out on medical leave for 8 of those months…
Thank God for the twins – I’m glad to have them to take care of :). And it’s their 10th birthday tomorrow. Boy, the time goes fast!
- got rid of the midriff band. I think with my short-waisted self, it’s best to leave the midriff off.
- put in a side-seam, hand-picked lapped zipper. I quite like the result, but I really need to pratice my hand-sewing :).
- completed the back pleat. I’m sure if I love it though.
There’s still some excess fabric happening on the front seams. I made marks to take in the two seams in. And I think the protruding derriere adjustment needs to move up 2 in. And I never adjusted the smaller wrinkles on my lower back…
Whew! I’m fatigued from all this fitting, but I’m not abandoning my 1 dress.
We have a wedding to attend in September and Steve likes the bombshell dress. I’ve got some (new) bodice fitting to do if I’m going to get this dress made.
