Dropping in to say "hello"
I just wanted to drop in and tell all of the friends who I've made in blogland how much I miss all of you. Life has gotten so busy and as you all know, blogging takes a lot of time and dedication. Those of you who have been able to maintain a blog year after year amaze me. The irony of it is that the thing blogging helped me discover that I love is the thing that takes me away from blogging...sewing!
Since I'm here, I thought it'd be fun to show you my latest project. After one year of sewing I have been able to make my first dress! It's the Cambie dress by Sewaholic.
The dress is made from one fabric on the outside and then another fabric for the lining but I thought it'd be fun to use a different fabric for the waistband as well. Here it is, a turquoise dress with a coral waistband. The inside lining is a pretty lavender fabric. I made two changes to the pattern. 1) It should have a sweetheart neckline, but I opted for a straight neckline 2) It should have pockets but I left them off since I thought it would be too bulky with pockets. I just love how it turned out and I'm excited to wear it to work tomorrow with a light peach cardigan.
Until next time, happy blogging and take care!
