This is so completely applicable to today.
What didn’t I plan you ask? Well, I knew what I wanted to make, knew what fabric from my overflowing stash to use, knew I had loads of thread. Assumed that in the zip box there would be a long enough red or white invisible zip. A-HA therein lies the lack of planning. I never checked said zip-box. And no-one in my little rural market town sells invisible zips!
So I have no finished red dress to show. But I do have a pinned-down-the-back red dress…. Want to see?
And the pinned back…
So the lesson is: As Husband would say, “Assume makes an ass out of you and me”. Yup. I have to get onto Jaycotts and buy zips!! Am I the only one who gets all excited about making something, only to fall at a simple hurdle, like non-existent zips?
