Here's my newest blog post! I've used sewing patterns to try and learn to sew dresses but am never completely happy with how they turn out. I don't feel experienced enough to design my own dresses (and don't want to waste the fabric on a bad design) so I've been told I should start with alterations. Today I took the plunge and altered a dress for the first time! I'm so happy with how it turned out and can't wait to find more alterations I can try and work up to just designing my own clothing :)

I feel like everyone has "that friend" who can go into a thrift store and find something to alter or even transform into something new except me, so I've decided to be that friend! But I have no experience with altering or anything, so today I bought a dress that I loved but was a little loose in the bust and learned how to take it in at the sides for a better fit. I'm so happy with how it turned out and can't wait to think of more projects to try (but starting small of course)

I'm really interested in learning how to sew my own clothes, but am nervous about taking on a whole project at once, so my friends suggested that I start with altering clothes and work up to bigger projects. Today I bought a dress that was a little loose in the bust and took it in on the sides, and here's the story of how I got through it! I'm so happy with how it turned out and excited to find more projects!

Check out my new blog post about altering a dress for the first time! It was very loose on the sides, so I took it in a little over an inch on each side. It feels nice to go from frumpy to fitted! #sewing #diy

I love to sew these for Christmas - little drawstring pouches that are great for goody bags or small gifts. And they're reusable!
