All dressed up and nowhere to go? During the heat & humidity of last July, I cut this dress out along with three other outfits. By the time I finished sewing a Shannon Fabrics Double Gauze cotton jacket and a wool dress, I had lost interest in the knit dress. After all, where will I wear this dressy dress? Then I realized, I am now traveling virtually and always try to wear something I made.
My SCHMETZ virtual class schedule has become very popular with at least two, if not more, classes booked each week. With just a little tweak in my attitude, I reclaimed my sewing mojo! Last week, I finished the dress on Wednesday and wore it Thursday evening at The Big Virtual Sewing Event Home Made Virtual Sewing Event Video - Bing video. The weekend before, I dropped by an estate sale and without having this dress in mind, found the fabulous vintage brooch that looks perfect on this dress. My conclusion? Sometimes projects have to "season" for a while before perfectly materializing.
