A turbulent week

It started off a  turbulent week, followed by sadness and a sewing disaster.  For the past few weeks we have been on tenterhooks awaiting the outcome of hubby and sons jobs.  Thankfully their jobs are saved but with fewer hours, and for how long time will tell. Then on Tuesday we received sad news that a good friend had passed away.  We are devastated, and finding it hard to come to terms with, especially my husband as its his oldest friend

I have been sewing in between all this upset and turmoil to keep my mind occupied, it definitely wasn't working as I have just wasted some material trying to make vogue 8576.

Somehow I have cut it out wrong (all those pieces) Im hoping I can salvage it somehow, but I havent much spare fabric and this was a piece I bought when  I visited Shipley. I  wish I had used a fabric, which is easier to differentiate between right and wrong side.  I love this pattern and ope it will become a favourite piece, once mastered.  This will also tick one the boxes on my Sewlutions pledges, where Ive read, the organiser will do random checks to see if we are keeping to our pledges.
