I *Think* I'll make it...

The wedding to which The Princess wants to wear her Simplicity 2442 dress takes place at 4 PM tomorrow...and this is the current state of the dress:

Now, in all actuality it needs:
1) Facings applied to top back
2) Side seams
3) Facings folded down and slipstitched
4) narrow machine hem on the skirt.

I think that's do-able by 3 ish tomorrow; but I've lost the back facings. I'm pretty sure I remember sewing them up as prep...but they've TOTALLY gone missing.

I'll just cut new ones. In the morning.

Right now...I'm off to bed. And I'm turning the alarm off... ;)


  1. Don't you just hate when facings go AWOL? I swear I have facing gremlins in my sewing room. I bought a napkin holder from Ikea that works really well to hold small pieces like facings where I can find them.

  2. Well, let's just say that if my sewing room resembled something other than a war zone I might actually be able to keep track of things like's sad, sad!

  3. Did I say 'sewing room' ha ha ha---sewing NOOK is the word. Or,as the kids call it, Mom's Cave...
