Ugh...I am at a standstill on my creativity. I was going whole hog on my reversible McCalls 5861 and am almost done, but, but, but...it is not hanging properly (I switched it up and added a rick rack trim) and I will need to take the whole seam out and redo. I also may have chosen the wrong fabric. There is so much fabric in this dress that I am dumb-founded. I just measured it and there are 4 yards of fabric gathered for each side of the skirt. It is making a rather bulky waist on the dress. I hate it when something looks so cute but does not sew together as imagined. I am not going to give up on this dress though. It is just too cute.
So I am in search of one of these to help with the fitting and hanging of the dress. I have already suggested to hubby that it would make a great birthday gift, but he seemed uninterested in getting me another thing to clutter up our small home. But I need one...so that is that.
But as my whole upper body is aching from being so tense while I sew and blog, I guess a few days off will do me good. Meanwhile I have two other dresses I can't wait to start...but now feel that my dreams of them will not stand up to the reality. I surrender.
