I never intended this fabric to be an Emery dress, but when things are meant to be, they do have a way of working themselves out. Sometimes all the pieces fall into play, and you just end up with the world’s most perfect Emery dress! Maybe? Okay, I may be a little partial, but hey, I think it falls right on up there in the rankings!! You be the judge…
Want to know the best time of year to go all out with those novelty prints in your stash? Holidays. Truly, what is more novelty than a dress that is only appropriate 1/12 of the year? Not a whole lot. So today, I’m excited to share with you my small (but growing!) collection of Halloween themed dresses!
Happy October 22nd! If you have been following along with #MeMadeFall2017, you’ll remember that today marks the kick-off of our second wardrobe category of makes – CARDIGANS! The perfect, timeless autumn wardrobe staple. For my interpretation, I had envisioned something slim fitting, but with a touch of drama, extending down to about mid-calf. See how I made it happen, here!
I don’t consider myself a creative person. I have a hard time picturing things when they are described to me, and I find I do much better if I’m offered a visual representation of a design. However, I’ve recently started to recognize that there is, in fact, something a little more creative somewhere in my brain, and it is finally presenting itself in my handmade clothing. Over the past year and half, my sewing inspiration has come from ready to wear garments, the print on a fabric, the silhouette of a pattern, among so many other things. Most recently, the lightning bolt of creativity struck in the form of blue fringed suede.
