After feeling a bit down about my botched Frock by Friday sew-along effort, I decided to make a much easier frock from Presser Foot and it turned out super cute. I absolutely LOVE it!!
Based on this tutorial.
I got so many compliments at a friend's party that I was practically shouting from the rooftop "I MADE IT MYSELF!!!" Clearly it went to my head and I was feeling a little too confident... so much that I decided "hey, let me try another dress!" and it turned out horrible. Granted it was a completely different style, more of a shirt & skirt combo. I didn't even take a photo it was soo bad. Once I finished the hem I tried it on, took it off and cut it in half. I'm a fan of the top but the skirt was absolutely horrible. I looked like a kid with an inappropriately large behind. I'm not sure what to do with it now, it's wayy too short to wear as a shirt but I love the detail in and around the collar:
Inspired by Lex.
I am seriously addicted to sewing now and I want to sew ANYTHING & EVERYTHING humanly possible, even the things I know I'll kill myself trying to make!
