I never made a garment before. I made this dress with reclaimed Japanese silk for the top and synthetic silk for the skirt. I wrapped the top and put a snap on the back. Since I didn’t know how to hem in a proper circle, I folded the skirt fabric in half to form a smooth hem then did a gather for the waistline. It looked horrid but since my husband asked for a divorce while I was trying to figure out how to sew a dress, I opened a big bottle of Merlot and got to sewing! Lol I’ll do better next year. I promise!
To push myself creatively
I learned that even though my skills need lots of work, I mean LOTS, I still am proud of the accomplishment.
Be brave, be bold, be yourself!
I’m so happy I did it. Can’t wait for the next one.
