Do you ever jinx yourself when you are sewing? I do all the time! Last night I was working on my muslin for the Truffle dress and I thought to myself, "I can finish this tonight. All I have to do is put in the zipper, sew up the sides, and hem the bottom. Easy." That was when it all went wrong.
I don't think I pressed the zipper open enough with the iron which was the problem. When I was sewing the needle kept going through the actual zipper part (yes, I was using an invisible zipper foot) which is a nightmare when you are trying to zip it up. I pulled the tab so hard that the zipper left a gap between some of the teeth. Luke tried to fix it and pulled the whole tab off. Like I said, "NIGHTMARE." So, I had to take the zipper out and in the end wasted one hour of my time and didn't make any progress.
Have any of you done this before? I'm going to have to be more careful when I'm sewing!
