Pinning!

Then, I ran it under the needle, like I do!  ๐Ÿ™‚  This left me with a big scrap that I sewed into a long tube by sewing a line about 2″ from the original seam.

No raw edges here, folks! ๐Ÿ™‚

Next, I took the tube, folded it, and stitched it to the front of what was about to be my new dress!

I tossed on a sash and was ready to dash out the door!  ๐Ÿ™‚

While out and about, I ran into a few fun people, like my beer snob pal, Alisha.   ๐Ÿ™‚
