The last few days I've been working on my first 'real' dress- Hazel by Colette, in a beautiful buttery floral print, yet I must confess to some frustration today. I do believe that Edward Monkton was thinking of me when he drew this:
Try as I might to be satisfied with less than perfect top stitch, it really just won't do. I end the day having moved backwards, rather than forwards, in my pretty project (cue toys being thrown out of pram).
Sleep and the fresh perspective of a new day required; Bedfordshire here I come...
Does anyone else struggle with this same dilemma? Any buttons of wisdom to impart?
Things I have learnt (so far), whilst making my Hazel dress:
1. I love enclosed edges and anything other than an enclosed (or overlocked) edge is almost too much to bear.
2. Unpickers are invaluable.
