Well, it appears I've bitten off more than I can chew. My grand ideas of completing shorts, possibly a romper, a skirt, a dress, possibly a t-shirt, a blouse and a tunic alllll before August is obviously not going to happen! With my mom's visit and other stresses, I lost track of time and I cannot believe August is just a few days away!

Since I'm still (unfortunately) searching for full-time employment, I have time on my hands to do the things I've been putting off. Like finally managing to redo my website! That took quite some time and I'm pretty happy with it, though I still have plenty I'd like to change. It's only been up for a few days but I suppose that's how all designers are... never completely satisfied with their work. There's a permanent link over on the left for it.

My wish came true!

The Anna Sui wrap dress is in my closet and I didn't die making it! The whole process was so much easier than I originally thought it would be. Granted it did have a million pieces (24), narrow hems everywhere, pleats, ruffles, and is fully lined. Can I also just say chiffon is intense? Without further adieu...

I absolutely love this dress!

The reason behind my sudden dress making confidence was due to my mom's visit. She was here for just about two weeks and I finally worked up the nerve to just make the darn thing knowing she'd help me whenever I needed it. I was worried about my fabric choice when I first tried it on but I'm so happy with it! Now all I need is a wedding or fancy dinner to go to!
