This week's challenge at Project Sewn- was to sew something that was our strength.
Since I am new to sewing- I don't consider myself as having many sewing strengths.
I learned a great tip on this project.
Don't cut your fabric out- while watching the Olympics!
I wanted to alter/tailor the pattern to my body.
My measurements said I was a size 8 top and 12 bottom.
(I am a classic pear)
I started cutting- and the dots and dash lines that distinguish the different sizes- became blurred.
Here is the finished version.
Can you see it "bubbling" on the right.. on my hip? Yeah I need to work that out.
I don't plan to wear this dress- without a sweater or jacket over it. I just wanted to show you the finished dress- without embellishments.
I love the color combo of Royal Blue and Light Blue/Turquoise.
(I've had this belt for probably 4 years- and have NEVER worn it. This is why I have a hard time getting rid of anything... because I just might wear it- ya never know! )
I didn't really wear this outfit with the scarf.
( I mean- Yeah- I wore it outside with my coat..
but I took the scarf off with my coat, when I was working.)
but I wanted to show you.... these are my favorite colors and color combination.
I am drawn to these colors! They make me happy!
Now.. I need to fiddle more with the bubbling side seam... sort that out so it lays flat. But over all.. I am very pleased with my first dress sewn!
