my next adventure in sewing for myself is this dress, simplicity 2363 that i blogged over here. it was close but I'm going to have to call this one a failure for me. (not the pattern, just my dress!). It turned out too big. kinda way to big. I took it in on the sides to get it to fit but now the bodice looks too big for the dress. it doesn't help that it's emphasized by this rope trim I used hoping for a cute nautical thing but ending up looking sloppy. also not sure the fabric was the right choice. so, botched. but I say it optimistically because I feel like I'm getting close. I honestly didn't expect even moderate success right out of the gate. I expected to sew 4-5 things that failed before I hit on one that really works. pathetic, I know. but realistic. me and sewing for myself have a troubled history. but I have very high hopes for my next project! navy blue linen a-line skirt.
and I'm ready to be really motivated/inspired because project runway starts tonight!!!
