Perhaps I will make one last try which means I am going to spend the entire day ripping seams, pleats, etc. Once everything is ripped I will make a some more alterations. Once those are done, maybe I will feel differently. I just don’t know if I have enough willpower to start these projects all over again. This is the time when I truly wish I had a sewing buddy. If there is anyone one the Minneapolis, MN area that may be interested please email at Katr52 at Yahoo dot com.
