So a pretty piece of fabric and a TNT pattern gave me this ~
There is nothing new or even different about this...except that a dress that should have taken 3-4 hours to make took me way longer. It's usually like that for me when I'm trying to reclaim my sewing mojo.
Once again, I'm just tired of my current wardrobe. I haven't had that feeling in a very long time but the feeling is definitely affecting my sewing mood and what I want to create. While I long for new patterns, complicated sewing and new sewing challenges, reality says that I need to clothe my body. So that's why I reached for my tried 'n true dress pattern to go with this fabric.
The fabric was purchased from Emmaonesock in late July. Yeah a record for shelf life in the collection considering I haven't been sewing much...but I really wanted a dress from this fabric so that's what I made.
- It has an invisible zipper in the back.
- It is lined with white rayon bemberg.
- I also added white piping to the neckline and bias binding to the armholes. Originally I thought about adding some pockets to the front of the dress but caught myself in the knick of time since I'm not really a pocket kinda girl.
...but in all honesty I would stand out in a way that would make me uncomfortable...though it took a lot of self-control not to add those dayum sequins! *LOL* That part of the exhibit really fueled my desire to finish up this blue 'n white dress because it seemed as if I translated my love of the exhibit into a wearable garment!

I'm moving on to other things. The heatwave has broken and it's going to be cooler around here this week. I will be recycling some of the skirt/cardi combinations I wore earlier in the season giving me time to sew some more things for late summer/early fall.
...as always more later!
