As I contemplated this Sewalong, I wanted to make sure that I wasn't just sewing to be a part of the Sewalong. I wanted to make sure that I am going to be sewing something that I am going to use. I thought about what needs I am going to be having in the next few months, and how I can make this dress fill those needs.
There is an outdoor wedding in late October which will be pretty chilly here in Indy. And then of course all the holidays will be upon us, and I know that I will need a go to dress for those events as well. With all those events in mind, I went looking for fabric. I am not great at searching for fabric online. I am a very tactile person and I need to actually feel the fabric. So I headed out to my local Hancock fabric. After perusing a multitude of fabrics, I found the perfect ponte for this dress.
|With a beautiful back like that I may make sure it peaks out on occasion!|
|It drapes beautifully and is sooooo soft!|
So I am wondering, have any of you picked out your fabric for the Sewalong yet?
