Day 36

my least favorite part of sewing

My daughter, Shauna, went to Africa a couple of weeks ago and had a dress "made-to-fit" for a mere $10. Not a bad buy, BUT it was a little tight on top and the arm holes were too small. "Mom, can you fix this dress so it fits?" "Why OF COURSE I CAN!"

Big mistake. This dress is sewn by amateurs that's for sure. The lining on the top is super flimsy. I ripped it apart and sewed it back up TWICE. What was I thinking? I could have made the entire dress in less time that it took to alter it. And I can only hope it fits. Ah well....the things we do for our daughters!
