Well after much procrastination I finally did it, I finally started this blog. Sewing is one of my many talents but have recently found it to be a major passion of mine so let me tell you how it all started. I first started sewing when I was 16 and in high school. I went to private school and we used to go to an annual competition for the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) program available through our school. We were most known for music but they make you pick another category aside from music to even out the score I guess. I figured well everyone in my family sews why don't I take a stab at this and I would have won except I was supposed to have three pieces and they claimed they couldn't find me to get the third piece. To bad we didn't have cell phone then. However, when they finally found our group leader (my aunt) they raved about how much they loved my dress and jacket but I had been disqualified because that third piece was missing.
Fast forward to 2013:
So what had happened was I was perusing through Pinterest a little over a year ago and I saw this cute little woman who made her own clothes. She reminded me so much of myself just a shorter version. But I said to myself I sew miss sewing I hadn't sewn a garment in 10 years. She inspired me so much that I dusted off my sewing machine that I hadn't used in literally 10 years and I went to work. Now here I am a year later and I haven't stopped yet and I don't plan on it anytime soon. I love what I do so much and I'm even more happy that I can take what I love to do and inspire someone else to do the same thing.
I used Vogue pattern 8898 here. This pattern was super easy. It was literally 6 pieces. I used a lightweight jersey which I didn't really like too much so I'll definitely make the dress again out of something a little bit heavier next time. Sorry I bought the fabric from my local fabric store here in Philly so I don't have a link for that. My shoes Makani are from JustFab.com
Let me know what you all think. Oh and another thing, I now have a fan page here. Share my page with the world you guys!
Here I am just being plain ole silly!!!!!!
