So then my list expanded to a 2nd Easter dress (two celebrations deserve two dresses, right?), a new spring blouse, and a new pair of springy pants. Not an impossible-to-complete list, but a little more than I was confident I would be able to through in a week. So I did all my cutting and bodice sewing last week, leaving skirts, hems, closures, and the pants for this week. I've dropped the sweater for now (not feeling it at the moment) but would also love to add the new Eos blouse if time permits. I hit up an awesome estate sale on Sunday and walked away with approximately 30 yards of fabric for about $15.00. 'Cause that's what I needed - more fabric. And of course new fabric equals more inspiration which leads to an even longer list. Oops.
Anyway...today I present my first completed garment.
Then moved on to a chip.
Then we got some of this:
My favorite part of this dress is the little pleated detail at the neckline - unexpected and quite a lovely feminine touch.
Back tomorrow with outfit #2. It's all sewn up and ready to wear...but I'm going to need you all to wish me luck documenting that fact!!
