This is a follow-up to my lavender smocked angel-sleeve bishop:
It is now finished, MANY MANY MANY thanks to my friend Annelle. You see, I am a total klutz when it comes to heirloom sewing. I was putting on the bias band around the neck, but ended up messing up big time! That was around midnight… I went to bed feeling really discouraged.
I called Annelle the next day and poured out my woes to her over the phone. Always a good sport, and the most selfless person I know — she told me to bring the botched up dress to her to fix it! If there’s a person who could fix my dress, it would be Annelle (although in my despondent state the night before, I doubted even Annelle could fix what I had disastrously done)…
Guess what? Fixed it she did!!!! She also graciously finished it for me since I was running out of time. It looks absolutely perfect! I hadn’t had enough fabric in the first place to do a full-length bishop. Instead, I made a bishop top to go with pants. It gives a more informal look — in fact, it looks quite hip, if I may say so myself! :) Perfect for a summer outing!
Thanks for popping by. If you noticed that I have been tardy in visiting you back, it’s because I have been visiting with family. I will still be visiting with family for the next couple of days. But I will get to each of your comment when I am back to my routine.
