Costume design, vintage sewing machines, painting
I took a break from making princess dresses, sketching animal costumes & researching eco-fabrics to whip up an outfit for myself to wear to an event this coming Thursday. The dress is actually a combination of about 4 different patterns I’ve made in the past, picking out the parts that I liked from each, and tossing out the . . . not so good parts. I have difficulty finding wrap dresses in stores that fit me as I am very long-waisted, so most commercial dresses make me look pregnant. But yay! This one does NOT. Oh, and since I was already making a dress, I decided to also make a purse, no biggie 🙂 But it’s terribly cute, I may have to make one in every color.
