Watch a mild mannered woman go nuts trying to remember her sewing skills on projects which are completely over her head.

Dress of Doom Update
I am beating this thing into submission. Nevertheless it is the Dress of Doom because every thing just goes wrong with it. My beloved workhorse sewing machine started revolting yesterday. Luckily, I can basically finish this up by hand.
What needs to be done? A lot. Finish the sash. Buy and put on buttons and button holes. Hem the sucker. Put on the soutache collar (ready made and from stash). Sew down the facings. Whew, I am tired just typing that list.
There is still a lot of work to be done but the majority is completed. Because, that is an awful lot of green and I do not want any kermit the frog comparisons, I am placing some off white soutache on the fichu. Ah yes, something else to be completed on this.
