Sometime last night it became apparent that Prima Donna had a date to the Sweetheart's Dance and even though Drama Queen had planned to make her dress, it was now up to me. As you know, I had my tax appointment and then my Tupperware order to do, so by the time I gathered up the sack full of dress pieces, it was already after midnight.
Drama Queen assured me the pattern was easy and if I just followed the one she was making for Fajita, it should go fast.
So I did.
Unfortunately, there was a problem with that dress and I suddenly had Prima Donna trying on a bodice that I had put together totally wrong including the sleeves. It was time to unpick, modify, or throw in the towel.
2:00 AM I decided to unpick.
2:45 AM Finished the deconstruction and started trying to figure out the right way to put things together.
3:55 AM Back to where I was when I started taking things apart.
5:00 AM Skirt sewn and ready to attach to bodice.
6:15 AM Woke Nephi for his Merit Badge Pow Wow and started working on the zipper.
7:45 AM Made sure Crafty was up for her Youth City Council service activity. Had to rework the length of the zipper.
8:45 AM Had Prima Donna try on the dress before Rehearsal and found half a dozen things that will have to be fixed before she can wear it tonight.
9:00 AM Started working on this post for you.
9:10 AM Finally collapsed into bed.
Somebody wake me in a few hours...
