So I have been working on a tea dress, right? Supposedly, at least - I spent a lot of time letting it languish in a box. When Stevie came in January I had her help me with my underskirt hem and I've been working on it again since then, so let's pretend I've been working on it.

ANYWAY.

As it turns out, the pattern is not as crap as I thought. It's actually quite good. But there was definitely a screw up in the instructions and a high chance that the printer was off when my copy was printed. I had e-mailed the owner of the site about the pattern, asking why the directions said to sew "the side and front seams" of the underskirt, when the patterns says to cut the material on the fold (thus eliminating the need for a front seam). It took her a while, but today I got my answer - there are no front seams. I was right about that.

And I got a free pattern for noticing the mix-up.

This is quite awesome.

Also, also, also. With the exception of a pretty lace trim to go around the bodice and down the front of the dress, and one more hem? MY DRESS IS DONE. AND WEARABLE. AND FITS. AND IS TOTALLY HANDSEWN.

I love myself sometimes. XD
