...except that I don't actually have anything to show you! I totally thought that since this was a dress with no waist seam (and it was even labeled "Very Easy Vogue"), it would be a piece of cake to sew up, especially since I decided against lining it. But oh, silly rabbit, sheath dresses are for kids who take the time to fit, or else it will just look like a sack! So my grand plans of finishing it yesterday were trashed, and I spent a good several hours trying to get the dress to fit tightly enough to show that I'm a woman, but loose enough to
not raise the hackles of admin at my school show that I'm still a lady? At any rate, two episodes of BBC's Sherlock later, it was past midnight and I finally got the fit right, but the armscyes still needed to be finished and the dress hemmed. I threw it onto the ironing board and went to sleep...where I consequently dreamed that Sherlock's latest case was to help me figure out the mysterious problem of the butt wrinkles on the back of my sheath dress. Well, I'm not going to say no to Benedict Cumberbatch showing up in my dreams to help with fit issues!
All this to say, I've got nothing to show for the beginning of March stashbusting, but I hope to soon.

While I work on finishing up my dress, allow me to peer into your subconscious and ask: what's the wackiest sewing-related dream you've ever had?
