|Have you ever heard the saying don't sew over pins? |
Sometimes I live dangerously.
Along with all the sewing fun, I have also broke a sewing needle while sewing over a pin, stabbed myself while pinning the pocket facing, realized that I didn't cut the back skirt lining on the fold.
With all of this you might be wondering why I'm having so much fun.
It is because I am thrilled with how the Vogue 8577 dress is turning out despite all the near mishaps.
Here is a sneak peek. I'm just taking a break and hope to head back to work shortly. There is still quite a bit of work to do and I doubt I will finish it tonight but hopefully this weekend.

And I decided on these buttons! I was considering self-covered buttons, but these were in my button stash and I think they will work nicely.
