I'm having a brain malfunction.
These pleated peplums are doing my head in. I need to do the bias binding on the bottom first. so I am going to have to mark.. oh. *that* is why you baste it first.
I've just answered my own dillemma.
I just wanted to do some easy handsewing that I didn't have to think too much about. I've marked out everything I can possibly think of to facilitate this. I just dont have enough concentration today. I think I should just sleep for a bit and work on it tonight. It's that on-the-verge-of-tears frustration. I do not want to have a weeping meltdown.
but the cording is done, and seemed a lot easier this time.
