Last night, I made a dress.
I bought this fabric at a thrift store almost a year ago and I've been totin' it around ever since, promising myself that I'd eventually make something out of it. My imminent move has sent me into a sewing frenzy, as I'm not exactly sure if I'll have a working sewing machine in New York (and I can't take my beloved Bernina with me).
Basically, I just followed American Apparel's lead and made a Fine Jersey Tee Dress, leaving some excess at the neckline to create sleeves.
It's far from perfect, but it's the first thing I've actually made from scratch in a mighty long time. Almost all my sewing for the past few years has been dedicated to hemming and adjusting. I look forward to making more of these things, they're insanely easy! Oh, and I still have a vintage pattern for making underwear lying around somewhere--next stop, choniesville?
