19th August 2009: The Dress aaaaaaauuuuuuuggggghhhhhhhhh Well Ada's dress is nearlly finished but aaaaaaaaaaauuuuuuggggghhhhhhh what a time i've had with it
1st i had cut the front panel way too short compared with the rest of the dress
2nd when i had pined it all together i thought all i had to do was just do a little alteration with it as the pattern said on it up to size 18 .... was it fairy cakes i couldn't even get it over my hips, but thankfully the back was near enough straight so i was able to cut out 2 more back panels and put them in, but that made the top half of my back way too big, so my mum helped me put darts in it so now it fits ok
then 3rdly trying to sew the thing together and to make the shape for the front was just evil
but the most evilest thing to do was to get that stupid, (did i mention evil) zip in it took something like 3 or 4 goes D:
now i have just tacked the collar on so all i need to do now is sew that properly and then turn up the bottom hem.
