. . . but they’re there, I promise.
What’s more important is that I have no more elastic thread.
I’m making this dress and ran out of black elastic thread a few inches short of where I want the smocking to stop. Right now this dress is in that could-be-confused-for-maternity-wear territory.
– Use a different color of elastic thread? (JoAnn‘s has no more black.) It’s in the bobbin, but it still will bug me if it’s not the same.
– Order black elastic thread or check other stores? (Hobby Lobby, perhaps?)
– Keep the dress as is?
I’m not quite sure, but I think I’ll go with one of the first two options.
I also can’t decide what kind of straps I want – black bias tape, green bias tape, or make my own with leftover fabric? I got this fabric at Nitty Gritty at least two years ago (maybe longer than that!) so there’s no more – I would have to make do with what I’ve got left, which isn’t much.
Despite all these questions, I think I’m going to love this dress once it’s finished. I already have a second one planned in robin’s egg blue with red smocking.
