I want to thank everyone for their thoughts on ways I could try to fix my dress. I think I like the idea of making a bias tape with the same fabric the best. Of course, that left me in the same spot I was in previously because my fabric store didn't have a matching color thread. Luckily, I was able to get into Manhattan shortly after Hurricane Sandy and my favorite trimmings store was open and with a matching color!
However, I'm still a little shy about starting to fix my mishap, so I decided to work on something else. Or rather, I was placing items on my bulletin board, when I couldn't stop staring at it. It was so ugly.
|Boring wood, taken at night so it looks uglier.|
|The bf thought it was a scarf at first. And it does look rather nice as a scarf, I think.|
So much better now! The bottom sags a little where it's resting on the screw and the wood is slightly exposed, but that's nothing a little super glue can't fix.
Hopefully I'll my dress up in a few days! Still working up the courage to tackle it...
