I have decided to join a blogging pledge this year--Me-Made-May--wherein I have pledged to wear two items that I have made each week and create one additional item by the end of the month.
For those of you close to me, you know I haven't sewn anything except my son's christening gown since his birth--it's not just a lack of posts about things! I'm kind of excited to have a real reason to buckle down and get sewing especially since I've been lamenting my lack of handcrafting lately.
So here's my first entry--a dress I made at least two years ago. Sorry for the less than stellar photos, but it's all I'm capable of while solo.
I LOVE this fabric, but am not too keen on the waist placket as it literally adds at least an inch to my waist (many layers of a heavy fabric=a bad BMI). I'm pretty sure this was a McCall's pattern--any interested parties are welcome to inquire and I'll try to dig it out. It's really nice despite my comments. I just used the wrong weight fabric for this, though it was awesome whilst preggo and post for covering up/accomodating the belly.
Let me know if you're participating. I'd love to have some MMM '13 love!
