Not all of our sewing project can be successes.
Many years ago I was making a Vogue pattern that had a button placket down the front, just like this one. It was dark purple, just like this one. I couldn't do it, just like this one. Only many years ago I could go to my sainted mother for her sewing expertise. Sadly, I had to plow through this one on my own. And it shows:
By the time I realized I was not going to have perfection on my placket, I decided to just plow ahead and make it fun. Had I made that decision earlier on, I would have exposed all my orange seams to the outside instead of hidden in the inside...spilt milk:
Oh, well. I actually love it and it will be a fun knock-around dress for lounging and the beach. It just isn't perfect. Thanks, Mom. I know you were watching the whole thing and wishing you could come to the rescue.
