Lesson One. 
When buying trim, stick to trims that can be sewn on by machine unless you intend to apply less than one yard of it.

Lesson Two.
When attempting to recreate a dress with an excess of 50 yards of trim, see lesson one.

Lesson Three.
When sitting and hand applying this more than 50 yards of said non-machine-sewable trim, do not freak out if the dress is not done when you thought it would be.

Lesson Four.
WWKD actually works. :-)

I am applying WWKD as much as possible this weekend to see if I can get all the trim on the main dress done. I think I can get the dress put together during the week IF I don't have to spend any more time past Sunday night on trim. 

Assuming that is true, then I need to make a decision. I can probably get the dress wearable without the pinked & slashed lining to the pendant sleeves, and with a fairly plain set of undersleeves. If I do this, I will probably never get around to replacing those parts. If I want to finish the dress properly, it will probably take another 2-3 weeks.

I won't know until Sunday night how much will be possible. Until then, I'll apply WWKD liberally to the affected area.


Just keep sewing! Just keep sewing! Just keep sewing!
