Friday Night Sew-in Results!!!!! A long time coming......

                          " A Long Time Coming"


 I titled this post a long time coming, simply for the fact that it is...Okay, let me explain...Two years ago when I had the lovely idea that I wanted to sew and better yet that I would teach myself...My first project that I decided that I wanted to sew was Simplicity 2957 "It's so Easy" yeah, about that, don't believe the hype..Especially for a true true beginner like I was and still am.... Okay, naturally the first dress was a disaster and the second dress was a disaster and the third dress, you say, has to be the winner....WRONG another  disaster lol....the fourth dress a total disaster worst than others...This is when I got discouraged and put off sewing for a few months...Well, at the beginning of this year is when I decided to get really serious with sewing and to give it my all..So, seeing that I have been sewing regularly since the beginning of the year, I felt it was time, time to see what I was made of...So, on Thursday I prepped and cut my fabric and Friday I participated in the Sew-in and Saturday evening I have a wonderful dress that I am absolutely in love with..So,  the moral of this story is," if at first you don't succeed try five more times lol"... Well with out further ado here is my pride and joy! As always Divas be blessed and nothin' less!

  3. The dress, and your styling, looks great! I guess the fifth time was the charm for this one :)

  4. What a great-looking dress! It fits you well, and you are right, persistence does win! Now you can make as many of this dress as you want, in different fabrics, since it is guaranteed to be a winner!
