It’s done. I love it, and I’m glad it’s over. My Missonish fabric has become a dress!
It was one of those sewing projects that didn’t come together until the very end…. as in when I basted the hem in place.
I glanced over nearly 100 reviews of this very popular
One promise I made to myself during this 365 day challenge is that
I will not be in a hurry when I sew,
and I dutifully made a muslin of the top before I cut the fabric… but I skipped out on the bottom after convincing myself it was unnecessary.
HELLO… Goodbye Valentino meets poodle skirt.
I then nipped and tucked this lovely fabric one hour after another until I reduced the skirt’s sweep by 25 inches before getting the look I wanted!
Perseverance pays off and maybe this is the lesson I will take away from the year. In the past it was simple to walk away or even throw away a dubious project, but I’m learning commitment to completion brings forth one’s best efforts, and our best efforts ultimately lead us where we belong.
Have a great weekend!
