Scrappin’ wedding wednesday stuff until one of my bestest friend gets engaged and we all go into full fledge wedding planning. Then, we will be talking wedding stuff a lot. I must say I am so excited. I know (and she knows) its coming. She isn’t suppose to know, but she does, cause her boyfriend is really excited and loves her so much that he can’t contain a secret (I hope John isn’t reading this). If he is… John hurry up and propose already!
Anyways, so I did get to do some sewing before we left for vacation. I needed a dress cause I am running out of clothes with the burgeoning bump. I know this will sound crazy, but wearing skirts or pants make me nauseous. Super queasy. I will put one on the for the day thinking I won’t feel it, then I do, and I end up changing. Thus, I needed to make a dress. Now, I have loved the mociun tie front dress for a long time, but my pocket book doesnt (neither would Ben’s pocketbook), so I decided to try and make it. It can’t be that hard, right? So I sketched out my plan. Mind you, I am not a pro seamstress. I just learn from trial and error and make things to only fit my body. I finally worked on it and let’s just say that my first attempt was big bust.
The dress was way too ginormous for me, even with a big bump, and the pattern was too much, the cotton too heavy. It was just all wrong. It made me look like I was wearing Joseph’s technicolor coat! Maybe, one day I will figure a way to make it workable. I am thinking if I get a coordinating solid fabric to make the skirt, it might work. I don’t know. When I get the courage to attack this piece again, I will.
