Messy day

I kept on trucking with the floral shirt. I pulled out all the stitching attaching the peplum to the shirt and was ready to go. I dragged all the gear out and got to it. I needed to regather the piece, so I took it over to my sewing machine... and SAT on it. I pulled it out from my apparently aggressive rear end and ripped the fabric!

And it ripped! Note to anyone sewing with Voile, it tears easily and your rear end hates it!

So I cut out a whole new piece because I had extra fabric and after all the stitching I thought I might as well.

Easy fix. I used the rest of the rest of my thread and attached it perfectly. :-)

Beautiful right? Then I decided to zigzag the inner raw edge instead of anything fancy because I am lazy. I got halfway through and my bobbin ran out. I simply refilled the bobbin...

With ALL my thread. It is not Sencha bad, it is just little things I am messing up not paying attention. I decided this was a nice place to stop, and maybe have a glass of wine!

I tell you what, I am going to wear the heck out of this shirt as much time as I am putting into it.
