Happy Monday! Let me start out by saying I am having major withdrawals! I haven’t been able to sew because of my busy schedule or take pictures outside because of the rain. I didn’t have a space in my apartment to take pictures inside because I had accumulated a great deal of “stuff”!!!! Well I asked my mom and dad to come and help me do some fall cleaning and it worked out very well. I forgot to take pictures of the bags of shoes and clothes, but it was massive! Now I have a space to take pictures in the house!
This is an oldie but goodie. So old I can’t even remember when I made it. This is the first dress I made using clothes that I had in my closet. I followed a YouTube video by Coolirpa on how to trace a fitted top to make my own pattern. I was extremely nervous doing this the first time because I did not want to mess up my fabric. I was thinking to myself that this is entirely too easy and I’m going to mess it up! I used the flounce from McCall’s 6988 and added that to the bottom of the dress. I’m glad to say that I was very pleased with the results. I also had a great time playing around with my sunglasses. Check out the (uncropped) pictures below!
