Good News and Very Bad News  


Well, today I made some great progress on my dress. I finished the entire bodice! Got the white straps all finished up, put in the boning, and attached the side and back pieces - fully lined! Woo! It was a great and efficient day!


My iPod died! *cries*

Every time I sew, I listen to my iPod with my big, pink, fabulous headphones on. I really do think I function better with music on. But now... I'm screwed! I dropped my poor little iPod on the tile floor, and then things went bad fast. Now, all I get is the dreaded sad Mac face! Well, the sad iPod face anyway. It's heartbreaking! It's stupid to get so worked up over a possession, I know, but I can't help it! I use it so much, it's going to be so different and difficult to work without it. Prices of new AND old iPods are REDICULOUSLY high, so it looks like I'm going to have to get used to it.

Anyway, back to the dress I guess. Like I said, the bodice is done. The next step is to make up the skirt [which, by the way, isn't in the directions - they just assume it's so easy they needn't bother with telling you how... *gulp*] and attach it to the bodice. After that, it's just a matter of adding the zipper *double gulp* and then hemming the skirt!

It's very exciting, but I am a little nervous about the hurdles ahead. Not to mention, not only are the directions on the skirt very scarce to start with, but I'm also straying from the pattern on the skirt by lining it. So, I'm pretty much on my own with that whole thing. And then I have the zipper to look forward to... Oy. Oh, and it's a little scary that I won't REALLY know if the top fits properly or not until the zipper is in... As of right now, it's looking like it fits fine, so hopefully it will, because I have a hunch it would be a pain in the butt to modify it afterward, heh.
