Throughout all the chaos of moving I managed to squeeze a little time in to practice sewing. It’s been hard trying to teach myself but to be honest, I fell more and more in love with the process everyday. From picking the fabrics to creating patterns , to deciding how to cut the pieces to sewing it all together to create an actual garment; every step tickled my fancy.
This time around, I decided to attempt making a simple shift dress with a jersey inspired twist, making the bottom of the dress U-shaped, creating slits at the sides.
I was so sad to have to leave my sewing machine behind in the move, but this is something I refuse to give up. I will definitely have my sketch pad and pencils ready so I can get right back to work once I am able to access my sewing machine again. Sewing my own clothes has really helped me appreciate craftsmanship in general and the fashion world as a whole. So much work and creativity goes into the creation of a garment, it really amazes me. I look forward to pursuing and conquering this challenge. Learning how to sew well is definitely at the top of my bucket list!
Wow, I adore this dress, you did a great job, I hope you get the time to get back to sewing. Love your pairing with the yellow booties.

thank you! btw, your blog is so cute!!
Love your hair! What type of tool do you use to comb out your hair? Brush or wide-tooth comb? Is it naturally that big when you first wake up in the morning? Haha! xoxo
Thank you! I usually use a wide tooth comb. I have a spray bottle that i fill up with conditioner and water that i spray my hair with in the mornings to detangle and comb it out a bit. But even if i do nothing to it, its till pretty big.
