what I did!?! The little aqua Barbie dress is for my friend's (who happens to also be my manicurist.....yep, I treat myself to a manicure every other week) daughter. I took it yesterday. Little Cutie tried it on. It fit perfectly, except that the elastic across the back was just a little tight and the straps just a little short. Little Cutie just smiled with stars in her eyes because she LOVED it!!! Yea!!!! The elastic and straps are an easy fix. Whew!!!
She took the dress off, her mom laid it across my lap, and we proceeded with the manicure. WHY did I put my hand in my lap???? WHY? Because I wasn't thinking!!! Anyway, of course you know what happened, right? That's right..... I got nail polish on the dress. Bright reddish pink nail polish. Granted it was just a little, but any is too much. It got on the lace across the front and on the inside of one of the straps. Her mom was like, "Oh don't worry, my nail polish remover will take that out." "Try it now," I exclaimed. She did. IT DIDN'T take it out!!!! So, it was back to the sewing room. I took apart one of the bodice pieces, removed the lace and the strap. I, thankfully, had more and enough of the lace left over to replace it. I remade the strap. Then, I sewed it all back together, lengthening the straps and elastic!!! Whew! It's fixed and delivered, again! I just hope it fits correctly now. Her mom said she'll wear it to church on Sunday. I hope to see her in it again.
Don't forget to check out my other blog if you are interested in a Stream-of Consciousness style writing from my mother's point of view. This is therapeutic for me. There's a link on the top of my sidebar.
