Welcome to Blogmas Day 4!
Today I want to share with you my progress with sewing. I bought my first machine last February, and since then I have been working now and then, most frequently during weekends and days off. The first bunch of pieces I sewed were poorly built and were impossible to wear them comfortably, but lately I feel the results are slightly better.
Of course, better doesn´t mean perfect and I do know there is a long way to walk until the finished clothing is acceptable, nonetheless at this point I feel quite happy about how my work is evolving. Hopefully, in one year I will be sewing stuff I am a hundred per cent proud of, who knows? But as for now, I just wanted to show you what I have been doing.
I tried to build this dress according to the Lolita fashion standards before our honeymoon in Paris. I made it of plain satin cotton, and added some decoration and trimming. Also, I handmade the little rosette brooch in the waistline. In this pictures I decided to coordinate it with some vintage accessories to give it a certain roaring twenties vibe, as I was using it to walk through the Paris streets and it felt just the right thing to me.
Anyway, I had lots of fun by making it, and I am really excited every time I wear it, so that´s enough to me!
So tell me, darlings, have you been working on any new creative project lately?
