Under Construction. Coming back soon.

Falling Back in Love with My First Love

Hello lovelies!  I'm back with a super exclusive look of the day.  It's super exclusive because I made this dress!  With my bare hands lol.  Also with a sewing machine, thread, and fabric.

I made this dress a couple years ago. I don't remember exactly when.  I haven't sewn in a while and I actually miss it.  I just haven't made the time yet.  Hopefully soon.  Fashion, sewing, and creating was my first love since high school.  Somewhere along the way, I stepped away and tried to live my life the way others wanted me to.  I wrote a post about it a while ago.  The passion is still there.  
I have to put in the work now.

I used a retro Butterick pattern and added my own twist to it with the pleated flap.  The fabric has a subtle stretch so it's very flattering.

This classic, chic sheath is perfect for the office, after work, or a cocktail event 
with the right accessories.

I'm making a promise to myself to start sewing again.  I loved creating my own looks.  
And I want to do more of what I love.
