After much doubt about wether to join or not to join this sewing challenge, I decided to do it after all, even it could cause some sewing stress. I want to sew more for myself and I feel like this could be a great first step in the right direction.
A little while ago I fell in love with a drawing of a dress which I spotted in Mike Brown's ''the 1940s look''. I also found the perfect green fabric. A vintage sheet and a piece of fabric, both cotton and thrifted a few weeks ago.
This is a really great book, by the way. It contains a lot of images and information about both 1940s look and lifestyle. I always get inspired when reading this book!
Again, I decided to draw the entire pattern myself using the pattern book we also use at school. I also made the collar and the sleeves. Tomorrow I will trace the pattern so it can be laid on the fabric and cut out. The fabric is still in the washing machine so a photo will be taken later!
I just love drawing my own patterns because I practice the drawing and get a well-fitted garment at the same time!
I really feel bad about not blogging as often as I want to. Sometimes I simply lose my blogging mojo and then I cannot find anything worth writing about, I hate that feeling.. As always I have been very busy with school because there will be another exam in June. I will write about that as soon as possible so you'll all be able to see what I have been working on lately. Tomorrow I will continue with this dress and take some pictures of the fabric. I'd like to document the cutting and sewing process, so prepare for some photo-filled posts!
