mod dress size 6

mod dress size 6

yesterday was spent working on a size 6 girls mod princess cut dress. i got a mod looking fabric from joann's. the only part i struggled with was the facing for the neck and arm holes because i forgot to clip the curved seam allowance. putting a zipper in correctly is still a challenge but i'm getting better. i realized that i sewed the collar on wrong. so i fixed that. i'll be able to put it on for 22.00 and if i don't sell it i'll give it to my friend Iris. she has 3 little girls.

so i'm wondering today: is it normal for me to go back and totally rip out stuff, redo it until it's perfect now when that has NOT been my habit with crafts in the past. what changed? what has caused me to be more patient and methodical about fixing my mistakes? does this happen to everyone that sticks with an artsy hobby?

What's the story?

During the past 46 years, I've lived in Connecticut. I've traveled up and around the U.S. and to Puerto Rico, and loved every minute. I've had 4 children who are now fantastically talented adult artists and comedians. I've been married and then divorced and then engaged and then single and finally *big sigh* content. I've grown into a darn good nurse, cook, seamstress, and Mom.

Maybe one of these days I'll get this 'writing' thing down, too.
