So, I have lots of projects planned, but I am still trying to play catch up and post
some of the projects from the last couple of months.
That being said, here is the next installment!
This was a lovely summer dress I made back in April.
It was only my second from scratch sewing project and my first one using a pattern.
My dear friend Atlanta had just gotten married,
and this project was just the thing to get me out a funk after her beautiful wedding
and the resulting 7 state-hop road trip with my brothers.
I'll admit, having never sewn from a pattern before, this dress was a challenge!
Linings, turning things inside out and this way and that, zippers etc....
there were times I just had to let it sit for a day or two,
but in the end I was very, very proud of myself for finishing it!
It isn't perfect, but what ever is?
Being one of my firsts, I'm not going to be too hard on myself.
|I love this delicate blue floral pattern.|
During the creation of this dress, we were having *crazy, crazy* weather here in Texas.
When I started, the weather was lovely and warm...perfect for a new summer dress.
But by the time I had finished, I was sewing in a sweater and socks.
Things are finally warm enough now that I can wear this lovely out!
Now I just need someplace to go....
