Victorian Death-March

Last night I attempted to fix the little issues I was having with my polonaise, i.e. it being too small. I let out the side seams considerably, and attempted to repair the darts.

I put it back on to discover two heart wrenching facts.
1. It was still way too small and uncomfortable, and therefore causing horrible wrinkles in the front
2. The darts immediately started pulling out again no matter what I did.

Sadly, what this turned out to be was a very expensive mock-up. At least the fabric was only 8 dollars a yard.

Needless to say I'm really not that bummed, but it does suck. I was a fan of the stripes, but it just didn't seem to hold up to the strain.

Im thinking maybe a heavier weight of a bright sunshiney color. Yellow?? More stripes?? I guess we shall see when it comes to a fun hunt at Fabs r us this weekend.
