it was my thing all last summer to say, in my mind, i'm really good at tennis.
now, in my mind, i'm really good at sewing.
the above dress was lovely to begin with, but it was always a hassle to make the neck area work for me.
i have finally convinced myself that i need to wear clothing that fits well and doesn't give me grief. period.
so i thought
i'd turn the dress into a skirt.
let's say it didn't go as swimmingly as it did in my mind, but let's also say, the new skirt has character. it still needs some very minor changes, but i like it. i wore it to church on sunday--- which was a good test run because i know it's easy to wear and walk in. both good things.
anyway. here's to more sewing adventures. i'll get better, i know it.
next sewing project: turning a skirt into a shirt. hmm. we'll see.
i used this skirt tutorial as a guide. it helped.
