That just revealed where I made the error. I started out making a dress, and it ended up being a top. Title of the post was inspired by Alanis Morisette’s song “You Learn”, which has been playing in the car (and in my head) lately. Just checked and the recording was released in 1995. Eek. Time flies.

In the spirit of the failed purple dress, I took out my purple (RTW) skirt to go with the top, so the original purple all-over look would be preserved…somewhat.
Better be more careful next time. I was taught not to run with scissors as a kid. I learned that as an adult, even sitting down with scissors can cause problems…
