First I want to say thanks to the 102 followers I now have. WOW!! And, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. It has been awhile since I have posted, but I have been living in wadderville. I set out to make an Easter Dress from S2444 using some of the gorgeous Vera Wang fabric I got when fabric.com had their sale for $1.95.
I have been in love with that pattern since it first came out. I ordered it from sewingpatterns.com and had pretty much given up on getting it. It had been 3 weeks and they still had not sent it and had not charged my credit card. After emailing them, a week after I had ordered it, they told me it had shipped. It never came and the did not respond to my two later emails. I will never order from them again. I gave up and ordered it from somewhere else. Well the day after it arrived, the one from sewingpatterns arrived. GRRR!! I had planned on having a giveaway with one of the patterns when I reached 100 followers, but I lost one of the pattern pieces and had to cut my second one. GRRR!!! After I got the dress made, I put it on and it was just too much!!! It was too poofy and I looked liked I was wearing a curtain. I am just calling it an unplanned muslin :)
On to plan B---Then I decided to make M 5752 using some of that gorgeous Ivory Vera Wang jersey I got in the same sale.
That fabric is to die for!!! Well, I got it made and even did a pretty little cover stitch on the sleeves and hem using my Babylock Evolve serger. This pattern was really a pain to sew because it had one inch seams. I had my outfit all planned out in my head for Easter. I was going to wear a little jacket with it that I had made the year before and some shoes with the same colors as the jacket. I got the dress on that morning and was putting on my makeup. When I stood up from the chair after putting on my makeup, I had somehow gotten several spots of makeup on the dress. I am usually so careful.
Here is the dress and the makeup disaster:
Needless to say I had to wear something else to church. I immediately sprayed Shout on it and washed it. It did not come out. Then I sprayed Greased Lightning with Bleach Power on it, let it set, and washed it. It did not come out. I am bummed. Now, I just have no desire to sew. I am tired. In my mind I want to sew, but my body says no. Does anyone know how to get this stain out? Someone at Stitchers Guild suggested something from Joann's that sounds good, but I do not live close to one. Anyway, I know I will get over this and get back to sewing, but right now I am pouting. Thanks for listening :)
