Sometimes projects just don't work out.
I worked on this one a couple of months ago, and got mad at it because I kept setting the sleeves in wrong. That was not the dress's fault.
I pulled it out again today to work on it, and remembered all the things I didn't like about the fabric. It's wool crepe, but it's scratchy and doesn't drape well. Plus, it smells funky-- like chemicals.
I could spend more time on this dress, and fix the sleeves and what I didn't like about the bodice. Then I could line it.
On the other hand, I'm never going to be excited to wear this dress on account of the fabric. I don't even think this scratchy, smelly wool crepe can justify the cost of the lining fabric.
Better to pass the fabric along to someone else and start over with different fabric.
