I saw this dress on pinterest and thought there is NO way I'm paying that for a simple dress I have the pattern for. (on sale for $46 - was originally $70!)
So I got out my good old simplicity pattern
Made a few changes, sewed on the front ruffles and I ended up with this! I haven't done the shoulder button yet (I need to go to the thrift store and find some vintage, am hoping flower shaped white buttons)
I then used that same pattern and added some ribbon and a flower to make this dress unique! (this one too is waiting for the perfect buttons)
I am finding as I sew more that adding these extra details and bits of creativity to the things I sew is what makes me feel accomplished in my sewing. What have you been doing lately to challenge yourself creatively?
