Seeing Green

16 Sep

It’s been awhile since my last post and let’s just say that I have been kept busy! In February I taught myself how to sew, and so far the experience has been nothing short of life changing. The moment I picked up that needle I knew I had found my dream hobby; there is something incredibly romantic about transforming a piece of fabric into your own personal creation.

Whether you are crafting a dress inspired by the latest fashion house; or recreating a pattern from history…you are inevitably in control of every stitch, seam, and trim. It’s been an incredible journey that I hope will lead me down a road to self discovery and imagination.

Lately I’ve been watching a lot of Sex & The City and was inspired by this beautiful emerald dress by Lanvin (photographed above), I loved it so much that I went out to a nearby fabric shop and bought this green chiffon piece with gold pinstripes:

I knew exactly what I wanted to make with this fabric as I’ve been dying to sew this vintage 1970’s pattern by Butterick:

My husband has a work event coming up in two weeks so hopefully I will be finished with this dress by then. Stay tuned!
