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....
