Sewing a Dress
My experience of sewing thus far has been full of extremes-- there are the picnic blankets that I've been making, a very large-scale sort of project, and then there are little projects, things like these coffee cozies, or these country angels. So I am happy to report that I am undertaking a nice middle-of-the road sort of project: a dress for myself using a cute vintage pattern I picked up at the thrift store. I'm still hunting for some fabric-- I am checking back at the thrift store for something that is colorful and makes me think of spring, and if that isn't successful, I might just splurge and go to the fabric store. But I'm getting excited about the possibility of making my own clothes... talk about saving some money.
