Does anyone know the best way to fix something like this?
Other than that the dress is finished now except for the trim and I don't have enough yarn to finish that. I will either have to get another skein or use a contrasting color. Or, I have thought about just not adding the trim. The trim is a simple chain 1, slip stitch in next stitch around which just gives it a small rippled edge which reminds me of a row of garter stitch in knitting. I tried to get some pictures but I didn't have anyone to hold it for me and I don't want to put it on a hanger again because I'm worried about the straps getting stretched out from the weight of the skirt. I still have to get some ribbon to strengthen them.
- Use the contrasting color
- Get another skein of the same yarn or
- Skip trim all together
Below is a picture of the skirt portion of the dress. It was a hard shot to get since I had to hold it with one hand and take the picture with the other. It doesn't lay flat very well.
P.s. Buddy says "I'm the baby, gotta love me!"
Okay, here is another picture where I added the edging to the top but I didn't weave in the ends so I can undo it if I want. I'm a bit of a chicken liver and can't quite commit to the darker edging yet.
