Okay. I'm terrible at planning things ahead.
When I decided to join the SFC-Challenge, I was sure I'd be able to create a dress from start to finish in two weeks. But then, I got a lot of homework. And a few days ago I became ill. I have a terrible cold at the moment. I feel tired, weak and grumpy all day long. I can't smell anything and when I eat I can't taste a thing. It is terrible. My boyfriend is in Czech Republic for a ww2 re-enactment event for 11 days so I can't talk to him at all which doesn't make me feel better either. I did manage to find a photo of him on the page of the event. Oh, I miss him and love him so much! I will see him next week. Can't wait!
Doesn't he look dashing? ♥ source
The dress is really nearly finished. I just need to work on the zipper, side seam, sleeves and hem and then it'll be finished. I really like how it looks on the outside when I try it on but I hate what it looks like from the inside. The neckline is too ugly for words, I am not even going to show you. I have been sewing for 2 years now. Someday I want to make a living out of it and then, I manage to sew a terribly ugly neckline. Not very good for my 'sewing-confidence'. I'm a little fed up with the dress but I want to finish it anyhow. Nobody will look at the inside of the neckline so I'll just have to ignore it.
I will focus on my homework now during the next few days. The 2nd exam is approaching and I'm working on a blazer which is a lot of work. I do not know when I'm going to continue to finish the dress but I'll post about it once the job is done. I'm a bit disappointed about the fact I was not able to finish it in time. I would have loved to add photos of the finished project in the Flickr group and then they could be included in the video.. There is always a thing that goes wrong or comes inbetween. That, and I have to plan things ahead a little better. Anyone has some good advice ? Let's hope I'll feel better soon. There is so much I want and need to do.
That's all for now.
