I will never buy a wrap dress again. This is the fourth wrap dress I’ve made since January and there is no reason to fork out the big bucks, or even ‘bargain’ bucks again for one of my favorite styles.
I completed my one-year RTW Fast on August 31st and finally found my way into a dress shop in October. I bought the black sweater I promised myself 10 months ago after repairing moth holes in my trusty black cardigan during the fast, but as soon as I carefully examined a couple of $300.00 wrap dresses, I realized I haven’t missed much.
Expensive clothes will always be hanging around waiting for a buyer!
While it’s great to own a new sweater free of moth holes, the renewed energy and sense of self-assurance I gained from that shopping trip is greater. I turned to a Vogue pattern I made once before and paired it with a St. John silk jersey I found at a bargain price.
$31.00 of fabric + spool of thread + 8 – 10 hours = new dress with custom fit and $263.00 savings which is enough for me to say never!
This Halloween I was Treated instead of Tricked!
Tia Dia from Mezzo Couture sent me a blog award, a cute thank you card thanking me for reading and commenting on her blog.
The simple and sweet purpose of this new blog award is simply to thank the people who take the time to comment on your blog. My job is to pass it on to nine bloggers who comment on my blog. I tremendously appreciate each comment I receive. I’m passing the award on to the nine bloggers who have statistically provided the most comments on Goodbye Valentino.

Lastly, best wishes to my fellow sewing friends and bloggers affected by Hurricane Sandy. I’ve heard from several but not all, and I hope life returns to normal soon for you, your family and friends. translation……… we really miss you!
