My Sister Knows Me So Well


A couple of years ago, my sister picked up some fabulous fabric for me at a thrift store. She knew that I would love it. There was a decent amount of it, so I knew I could make a dress out of it. It’s bright, bold & full of polyester goodness. Definitely not a summertime fabric, but it is wonderful.

A few months ago, I finally got around to making a dress out of it. I found an A-line, modish pattern & went for it. Sadly I cut it way too big & then cut it too short. So it’s taken some time to make it wearable. I added some cotton lace at the bottom to compensate for the short length & had to take it in quite a bit. It’s still not exactly right, the shoulders need some work. But I do love it. Super fun. I love that clothes can take you to a different era.
