I'm pausing from my dress-making fury to inform you--
I'm up to my eyeballs in ruffles.
I think Marissa grew and I have to cut out a new bodice.
I'll need to get more fabric for that.
I may end up scrapping both bodices entirely and cutting out a different style.
BECAUSE the "round neck yoke" is not laying right, perhaps once I attach the bias tape it will, but the pattern says I should make my own bias tape--I've never done that before (which would also require more fabric).
I was attempting to explain to Josh what "bias" meant but his eyes glazed over, the same way mine do when he starts talking about moles, vectors, and the like.
I have reread this whole yoke/bodice part of the pattern about 50 times and still can't find anything I did wrong.
AHHHHH! I've never had this many problems before!
Another trip to Jo.ann's is in the foreseeable future . . . stay tuned . . . :oP
