If there's one thing I know about myself, it's that I need to practice if it's something important I'm making. I'm in a wedding the end of August and I am making my bridesmaid dress for it. I didn't want to cut the fabric (I only got 3 yards and there isn't any more!) and mess it up, so I made a practice dress to start with. It's a good thing, too, because it totally doesn't fit me. Ha! I have been losing weight, but apparently not quite enough yet! This dress fits VERY tightly. Scarlett O'Hara tightly. So I will be making another practice dress in a larger size. It's okay, they are surprisingly easy to put together and hey, I like dresses.
