And then the sash fell off, and a miracle happened. I thought, "I can make a bow-tie for the dress out of that sash!"
Only I had five or less minutes to get ready for work and no idea where I last hid needle and thread.
Then I remembered Mina's onyx magnetic Fashener (which I bought, so this is not like a paid endorsement or anything that qualifies as profit from blogging :), which is way better than sewing or safety pins, because no holes are made in delicate fabric. I folded the sash in half, used the Fashener to secure it to the back of my dress, and tied a fairly good bow - for me.

|I can hear my grandma now, "A lady always wears nice underwear!" So glad you can't see mine :P|
|I think perhaps a poltergeist messed up my bow while I was distracted by the self-timer.|
|Why doesn't anyone sell a nice sweater clip any more?|
