It’s been a while! My sewing ground to a halt for a few weeks, due to a few circumstances. However, I am back now, with a slightly different post than usual. I have spent the last week making dresses instead of costumes, and so today I’ll be writing about those.
Soon, I am going on vacation, and when I went to the store to search for things I can wear, I found nothing I really liked or that fit me how I wanted. So, I decided instead to go to the fabric store, pick up a few yards of pretty cottons, and make my own dresses!
I didn’t photograph the processes of making these dresses, but I did photograph the finished products. All the designs and patterns are completely made by me.
The first dress I made is this backless halterdress out of a newsprint fabric.
The next dress I made was for a scissor patterned fabric.
The last dress is made from a purple masquerade fabric. Like the others, it is fully lined.
Now, I have some dresses to wear while I am on vacation. I’m leaving at the end of this week, so will again be leaving this blog for a little while. I may post while I am away, but I am not sure of the internet access I will have (or at least internet stable enough to blog with), so I am just going to assume I will be unable to post at all. If you want to follow my adventures or see what I am doing, I will be posting updates and photos on my tumblr blog, here. You can also look for updates on my instagram, @needlepricksandnotions. When I get back, it will be back to costuming and regular updating, all going well!
