So, I’ve been frustrated in my sewing lately. Mostly it’s because I haven’t had much time, with starting a new job, then moving and packing everything up, then trying to unpack and get set up again. But I’ve been working on a dress from Burda Style called “Coffee Date Dress.” It’s a super cute pattern, and I got this great dark grey fabric that I thought would be perfect for work. Especially with a cute navy cardigan.
So, I started cutting and sewing a few weeks ago, and it was going great. I got the skirt part down before we had to pack up, and it was looking really good. So the other day I dug my sewing stuff out and got all excited to work on the dress again. I remembered, though, that I hadn’t washed the fabric, so I thought I’d throw it in the washer to get it all nicely shrunk and ready to sew again.
I didn’t realize, though, that Jesse had used the washer to bleach some white shirts of his, and apparently there was just a tiny bit left over, because it got all over my nice gray fabric! And of course that fabric was the only thing in the wash that got it. Grr…
It got hit pretty bad, so I thought “Fine. I’ll just bleach the whole thing, and have a lighter colored dress.” Yeah…didn’t quite work that way. Take a look:
