What can I say? The procrastination bug has hit me...again...especially when working with this fabric. Who knew it could be so hard to match plaids? I have several of them in my stash, and now that I've actually tried to work with one, I'm quite sure it will be awhile before I can gather my courage to work with the rest. Even after googling and reading all these articles on how to work with plaid, I still don't have a clue as to what I am doing. Plaid = Headache!
I would normally clean up my stuff after I'm done with what I want to do for the day, but this time, due to unanticipated frustration, I just left everything laying around for days. This is the pattern that I'm using for this plaid fabric. It's a vintage 1960s Butterick pattern in size 1. I really like the style of the dress, so I went ahead and bought it. Unfortunately, I will only be able to use it for a short time since it's size 1, and Sarah is growing.
How better to beat frustration than yummy food?
