Mom to the Rescue!

God bless my mother, who came over this morning and pinned like a mad-woman after I ripped out the offending seam and zipper. After undoing the lining and zipper, I've gone from this horrendous wrinkle extending from center back towards the zipper...
to this minor wrinkle...which I also discovered is due in part to my protruding scapula, which pushes the dress down. When I pull the dress up there, the wrinkle completely disappears. I may be applying double-sided tape to my scapula...
That took from about 8:45 AM to well after lunch, though I did pause for phone calls, etc. And I haven't addressed the tiny blip at the bottom of the zipper, but I'll get that done tomorrow. Now if only I could sew the lining back down and hem the dress, then go buy shoes and a bracelet to match, I could actually wear it tomorrow night. But alas, it'll probably have to wait till the Saturday before Fat Tuesday to be worn.

Off to browse DSK for gold strappy sandals...

Hurray! It's looking fantastic! I love your dress! Finally - success - and just in time!

Thanks! But after 4 shoe stores with no luck, there's no hope of wearing the dress tonight, so the pressure's off to finish the hem...which I started on at 7:15 this morning.
