I've been reading all the other blogs and not posting here. I have been sewing but some things were not going well in my sewing world. This was to be my second dress for the Stay Cool-Stitch a Dress Challenge. Cut it out, even bought lining to match, sewing went well and it's almost done. BOOM!

Cut a hole in the back of the dress with the serger! Not going to bore you with how it exactly happened because I've had more than one disaster lately.

Of course, I left the dress incomplete as I did not do anything more to it. I thought about saving it for something to just wear around the house after I close up the cut (and in case somebody stops by). So I'll look presentable at least.

For something easy and quick, I made up this skirt using B5147. I figured I could handle this without having another mishap. It is lined and has a slit in the back and a back center zipper. The fabric was from a piece leftover from a dress I made last year.

It came out great and all faith is restored, LOL!

A couple other projects are cut out and one already in the process and hope to share those soon.

Have a great sewing day!

If you have an embroidery machine, some strategically placed designs would save this dress.

Jackie, I was thinking the same thing as Dressed@atee, can you darn it on your machine? And then embroider a cute design on it? I agree that this can be salvaged.

Thank you so much! I hadn't thought of that idea. I will have to see what I can do. Thanks

Ugh, I hate that! I have not yet done anything unsalvageable (yay for my love of prints) with the serger, but it has definitely bit into places it should not! I hope you can rescue it.

Hoping you will be able to save the dress. Like the skirt and just cut 2 skirts from b5147.
