Well I have to confess myself as a bit of a sewing failure in the past. While I have many reasons and excuses for my failures I decided if I commit to a project on my blog it will spur me on to actually complete a project.So now what did I decide to start this project with? Well I thought since I have not sewn in a while and my tendency it to stop (although I don't admit to myself that I am doing this) when I hit on a snag like something hard like inserting a sleeve that I have never done before. So well I choose a modern retro pattern to get back in the swing of things. My pattern is from Decades of Style the New England dress.
I started tracing the correct size last night on my pattern paper. I ran out of time and didn't fully complete but did get the major pieces traced out. My next step will be to make a muslin of the dress. I will report back soon and let you know how I progress.
