Subject: I need to vent, ladies! When does this get easier? I had told myself that by the time I'd made 50 dresses, I would be fully competent and know everything I needed to know about Irish Dance dressmaking. Well I've passed the 50 mark and I'm headed toward 60, and I'm still making stupid mistakes and spending hours taking something things apart and putting them back together differently. Can anyone empathize? Thank goodness it's Friday!

I'm afraid I'll forget how to do certain steps on the next dress so I take photos and make notes. That's my big worry! (NT)SheilaFriday, April 05, 08:52:13pm

I'm not a professional, but last year I made four school dresses, no problem at all. This year I made four more, a d everything that could go wrong did. OMG. Never happier to see the end of that! (NT)Ugh!!!Friday, April 05, 10:08:41pm

I have found that each dress has some kind of little mistake, and every one of them has my DNA (NT)it happensSunday, April 07, 02:20:45pm
