My dress was on The Sew Weekly yesterday. It's so cool being on a website that I LOVE and to be posting among seamstresses that I admire so much makes me giddy. If you aren't familiar with the site, let me tell you a bit about it. Every week there is a new challenge that those participating must follow along with. This week it was to make something in red. I bought this fabric a couple of months back in preparation for the challenge and I am so happy with how everything turned out.
showing off my pockets
I sewed this pattern almost exactly a year ago and what a difference a year makes! I have learned SO much about sewing since then and this time making it was a breeze. Before, I struggled with reading the pattern, deciphering symbols, understanding new concepts, and those pockets, ughhh! The second time was the exact opposite, it took me several hours spread over a few days, not over several months.
