Another working title for this post was “Dropped the Ball”, because if you remember my goal to sew one wearable item a month this year, I totally dropped the ball by May. I won’t bore you with excuses, because I really don’t have a great one, but sewing didn’t make the priority list this summer.
I picked things back up in September with this fit and flare dress. I don’t know what it is with me and patterns, but I swear they always fit way to big compared to my size and measurements. I was so excited to finish, but I was swimming in it. Out of frustration, I threw it in a to-do pile and ignored it until mid October, when I finally altered it into something wearable.
As an airplane lover I was pretty excited to find this fabric. I fell in love with this dress on Modcloth made from airplane blueprint fabric, but have been staying away from $80 dresses lately. I think it’s a pretty good substitute.
Have you been more successful with your goals/resolutions for the year??
Oh, on an unrelated note- I started a new Twitter for the Etsy shop if you want to follow along for first peeks at new stuff and special discount codes :)
