Our Creative Space 'noooo, not my favourite dress . . .'
This is hardly worthy of Our Creative Space as it's more a 'holy crap how am i going to save this dress' situation . . .
a funny thing happened in a public toilet last week (i loathe public bathrooms & this has only confirmed my negativity) . . . as i went to leave the cubicle, my favourite denim-goes-with-any-mood-colour-season-accessory-dress somehow hooked on the nasty exposed metal toilet roll holder & as i swiftly turned to leave the cubicle i heard this heart wrenching rrrriiiiiipppppppp. My ONLY saving grace is that i had grabbed a paper bag from my car inbetween the bathroom & Shop Handmade so i could carry it behind me on the walk-of-shame back to Shop, where i promptly announced i had 'ripped the bottom out of my dress'.
I know, it's not even at the seam or in the centre - do i patch?? Repair?? Applique?? Turn my dress 'bottom' area into a feature with different denim pieces & colourful stitching techniques?? What to do?? I welcome your ideas, just know, i'm not letting this be the end of the dress. Help!! FYI Shop Girl Rachel pinned some fabric over my bottom to save my dignity & i had worn a trench coat that day, which allowed me to pick up the children from school & not flash my tights at any innocent children, phew!!
