What the Frock??

You may be asking yourself.... "What has meremade been doing? Where are the fruits of her labor? Why does she claim that sewing is her hobby when she hasn't had anything to show for it in months?"

May I present to you my fall fashion line-up. I call this collection, "What the Frock?"
I have been working from Heather Ross's book Weekend Sewing for a few months now, determined to sew something wearable. I wish I could say that I only want to wear clothing that I make, but....let's just say my collection is a bit wonky.
Nonetheless, I'm happy to share it with everyone.
Up first, we have a cheery apron that I made for my sister for her birthday (to go along with that cake). This is my favorite piece.
Next, we have a blouse made with cotton lawn from Liberty of London. This piece was a pain-in-the ass and I have to say, it's not the most flattering thing unless you're into that boxy look.
And, the piece de resistance, my first dress. This is made in a light, navy jersey material. There are so many mistakes here; I don't even know where to begin. Seams that are supposed to be hidden are fully exposed. I plan on adding some floral embellishments, a la Anthropologie, to trick the eye into not noticing said mistakes.
But I wore it to craft night last night (which really has turned into wine tasting night, but whatever) and it didn't fall off, which in my book, makes it a success!!!
Stay tuned for my next collection....
