Well, it was supposed to be a dress for church, and it would have been a really flattering one, but now it’s in the trash can. 😦 It’s been nothing but trouble from the start, but the last straw was when I pulled the zipper tab off the invisible zipper by accident. So I decided good riddance. I was tired of fighting with it, it wasn’t fun, and I decided that it wasn’t worth the headache and the trip to town to put in a new zipper.
I wouldn’t discourage anyone from using the pattern, just make sure that your pattern is complete, has instructions, and that you have enough fabric to do it the way it was intended instead of trying to come up with creative ways to make it work.
