I have my very own sewing machine and I am prepared to use it. So far I have almost finished my first dress - ambitious first project some would say, but not me and most definitely not my dress-making teacher. I thought ahead and decided to sign up for a dress-making course at community college. I bought a pattern, some beautiful fabric and I was away. It took me nearly 3 weeks to cut out my pattern but you have to start somewhere and now that I know how I will be able to cut with ease now.
It has however lead me to looking at the clothes people are wearing, particularly in the office, and thinking to myself "I could make that" and I totally could!
So, now I just need to narrow it down to what I am going to make next? My top contenders are:
Herringbone pencil skirt
This one would be amazing, but presumably difficult to fit correctly? Has anyone made a pencil skirt before?
These are a staple of mine in summer and in winter, I love A-line skirts! I want to find a great pattern and just make it in many different fabrics!
This is the skirt I wish to reproduce, without costing me $250 a skirt (dont worry, I bought this one on sale!).
Ok, not really. Not quite up to this stage just yet but I would love to make something like this in the near future!
