On thursday evening, I had decided to cut my pocket and neckline flaps in advance so they would be ready when time comes to sew the whole dress together,and when the moment came to press, I was all, "why the f*** is this bloody iron leaking like that???" Frequent answer to this kind of question is, RTFM. So I did. Handbook said, "your iron might be leaking because it's not hot enough". OK then, let's heat it up, shall we?
Well, heating up did stop the leaking...but it also burned my fabric and left a huge stain on the sole plate of my iron. You could guess how disheartened I was when I saw that my neckline flap was useless due to the huge hole in it...so I went to bed, and that was all for this day.
The next day I reported my adventures on the CP Forum...and was lucky enough to get an answer from Helen, thanks to whom I shall be much more careful when using my iron in the future. Thank you again, Helen, for reminding me that the steam CAN be switched off.

(NB : these are bands and artist I actually saw live during the week-end, but as I could'nt get to take as many pictures as I wanted, some of them will be from YouTube and so not my own.)
Hope you enjoy the music!
And this week-end, I think I should be able to finish my dress...just wait and see!
