I did put one into the linen dress, I'm presently working on. It is amazing to me that I can add a silk organza underlining, change a design feature or add elaborate embellishments but stumble when it comes to invisible zippers. It is the reason that "The Dreaming of Spring" dress remains unfinished. I can see the friggin' invisible zipper in the back of the dress, have the zipper on hand but have been paralyzed at the thought of putting it into the dress.
However, now that I've inserted this one (with some assistance from my DD), I believe I can finally finish up the DOS dress ~ which needs to be completed and soon or I will be unable to wear it because it will be too hot. I've written out the steps and will leave them on my bulletin board so the next time I can just follow them instead of trying to remember how to get it inserted. Hopefully this will help with my unease and feelings of inadequancy.
So my question of the day is "What techniques hangs up or causes you to pause in your sewing?" What technique stops you from completing your garment or just gives you an extreme case of the willies before you go ahead, presevere and work it out? It doesn't matter how simple or complex the technique, share! I mean I showed you mine...so c'mon show me yours! *LOL* Maybe we can encourage each other to keep trying to perfect those techniques so that we all can get over our stumbling blocks!!!
And Patty, the Little Prince wore the booties to the drs today and my daughter said he was the hit of the office. Of course she took several pics...of course we can't get them out of the camera because her camera software is ALSO on the downed hard drive.
Okay people talk back to me!
