Fittingly, when looking for a sewing picture, I happened upon my latest UFO. I would pose a question, if I had any hopes of somebody answering: Do you finish garments intended for a certain date/occasion, if the occasion passes and it's still unfinished? (I know what Trena - http://theslapdashsewist.blogspot.com/ - did with her inauguration coat, but I did not intend to sit in church with a stapled dress hem and a half open zipper). This was meant to be my christmas dress, only it wasn't meant to be... Oh, and it was a BWOF pattern from... uh... must remember to get organized for blogging.
P.S. One reason the zipper didn't get done might be that it's a pain to sew zippers without a zipper foot... yes, I do that... I believe that I am the original slapdash sewist, but Trena beat me to that title.
