Have you ever pulled something like this?
You’re sewing along, and all of a sudden you have a HUGE uh oh moment.
This was me last night. I was completely finished with a new dress for Reli, hemmed and all, when I decided to re-serge the waist seam to reduce some of the bulk from the gathering. I remove it from the serger, hold it up, and Wait WHAT! The middle of the bodice somehow got caught up in the waist. Oh well, just un-pick it and try again right? I must have caught a bigger chunk than I thought, because after everything is unpicked I am left with what you see above.
GRRRRR! 2 holes in the middle of the bodice back.
No way to hide it. I mean who puts a flower or applique in the middle of their back?
AND I’m out of that fabric, so there is no point in taking the whole dress apart and replacing that piece.
What would you do?
Patch it and hope no one can tell?
Throw it in the corner and pretend it doesn’t exist?
Trash it? Cry a lot? Burn it? : D
This is such a waste of what precious little sewing time I have!
I’m completely open to any suggestions, but for right now I’m gonna take the
day off before I ruin anything else!
