One thing I've learned about sewing: it lends to heavy swearing in my thoughts and out loud. 

Today I broke in my new Invisible Zipper foot, which is totally worth every penny and I highly recommend it. No more picking bad zippers or ironing!.......Or so I thought. 

After I took this picture, I sat down at my computer and the zipper popped open....... I will spare your innocent ears my reaction. I have NO IDEA what I am doing wrong, and I have never had this many problems with one dress before. I have another trick up my sleeve, which I think might work. I went to the gym afterward to get out my frustration, and to further that task I am going to watch reruns of Parks and Recreation until I'm wetting my pants in fits of hilarity. Have a good weekend.


  1. Hope the dress works out- I love those PD's- and in my opinion it makes you look extra skinny :)

  2. Ellen I LOVE this dress!! It looks like it is a skirt and shirt..very cute!! I wish I had lots of money and I would have you make me one. P.S. you look SUPER skinny in that pic.

  3. what a cute dress :) i love the shade of's inspiring me for work clothes :)
