I am so excited and proud to share my most recent completed sewing project with you all. Some of you may remember my Make Nine plans for 2020, and this dress was on the list. I was really excited to wear it but if I’m being honest, I was pretty nervous to actually make this project. I had such high hopes for it and would have been so bummed if it hadn’t turned out well. As a result, I spent the first several months of the year browsing to find the perfect fabric and fully spiraling in that decision the way only an over thinker can.
But as you can see, eventually I made a decision and then I eventually got up the nerve to tackle the project. I absolutely love the finished garment and it feels like such an accomplishment to have completed it. I wore it out on a date last night and felt like a million bucks because of it. The feeling of dreaming up a garment, planning and executing it, and finally wearing exactly the piece you had in mind is such an empowering feeling. I am so grateful for my sewing practice! Read on below for a gallery of photos and lots of notes on my process including why this color is so special to me.
