how embarrassing
I cut out Bridget’s Elvish dress today. Yay! I have to admit I had a bit of a dumb blond moment and almost ruined the sleeves. When I ironed the sleeve fabric, in prep to cut it, I forgot to turn the iron on low. Yep, got a nice big melted hole on one end of the poly metalic fabric. My own stupidity amazes me at times. Luckily I had bought extra fabric so I had plenty for the sleeve pieces. Can anyone say "Loser"!

There was enough of the blue cotton left over for an everyday skirt for me. I used my faithful Butterick 3418 for the skirt pattern. I think this is the fourth skirt I've made from this pattern. I cut it out "as is" but I will remove the demi-train when I hem it. Sweeps and trains are not practical for site-seeing around London.;>

On tomorrow's agenda is cutting out that velvet... aaahhhh! *deep breaths, Jenny, deep breaths*

Oh, don't feel bad about melting your fabric. When I was making my Arwen Requiem dress, I had the iron set on low and everything...and I melted a hole in the center front of my neck trim. Thankfully, it was below where the actual trim design went, but still. I had to turn the iron off, I think, so it wouldn't scorch the organza overlay on my trim base.

Hello, by the way. I'm Katie. I like your site, and I've seen you around on the S&S boards. *waves* :D
