So awkward, right? nothing before, still lots (hopefully) to come. This is a journey through time and space, as I sew my way from “yeah, that’s good enough to wear” slapdash sewing to expert craftsmanship worthy of couture.
Well, that’s the plan, at least.
Above left is a fabric I bought from Plush Addict (so lovely, but suuuch heinous shipping fees to South Africa). Lovely cotton, slightly calicoey- pretty sure it’s quilting cotton. should be stiff enough for the dress I plan, but with a bit of drape. On the right is a pattern I recently ordered from sewingpatterns.com. My plan is to marry them, and what a blissful union it shall be.
Another plan. So many!
In any case, the next couple of posts will be an update on my current project and a tutorial on all things button-y.
