It’s not bad at all…

But in case you haven’t noticed, I have a hard time wearing anything how it’s intended to be worn.  🙂

Next, I ran the pin parts through my machine to stitch them down.

It only takes a few stitches…you could even do this by hand. 🙂

Now I have a perfectly light and comfy dress to wear for this:
