Can I just tell you? The instructions for this pattern suck with a capital SUCK. Really. I emailed my friend Camille, who successfully and beautifully made this dress, and I asked her if I have suddenly taken a turn into stupid-land. No, she reassured me, the instructions truly do stink to high heavens. She even said, "I really didn't make the dress so much as my interpretation of the dress." She couldn't make heads nor tails of the instructions either.
This dress is putting me in a bad mood. Add to that the fact that DS the youngest brought home some nasty sinus bug that has infected all of us and it adds up to not much going on. But dammit, today I'm going to conquer this thing. So stay tuned and I hope you have happier sewing than I am at the moment!
