I haven’t been feeling great and it has been making me pretty much only want to sit on the couch and get nothing done, including sewing. However, I have a huge list of projects I want to get done for my Etsy shop, sewing for friends (even one paying job!) and also several projects for my own fall wardrobe.
In the meantime, I am going to try to post a couple of dresses I made a while back but never got around to blogging about, starting with this purple brocade number.
The dress is a combination of a few patterns, and I drafted the collar myself. Yay! This is one of the fabrics I bought while I was on my New York trip. Isn’t it pretty? I wore it with my "Space Barbie" purple boots. I never get to wear these crazy boots (a long ago Dillard’s purchase) but I just can never seem to part with them. In real life they are a shiny, purplish, silverfish, pinkish shade. They were kind of a perfect match for this purple and silver shinny dress.
I have a lot of sewing goals for the week, to try to get me back in the sewing swing. I’m trying to be realistic about what I can actually accomplish, but being realistic (or patient) isn't really my thing.
