I’ve been blogging much less than I have in past years. And that’s not because I don’t want to – I actually love having a post to share! It’s mostly because I’ve been spending my time on the pattern store and designing more patterns like the one I’m sharing with you here today. But, also because I didn’t just want to sew something just to say I did. I’m a person that is super intentional with my time and nothing irks me more than wasted time (and money!) I’d shared in a past post how discouraging it was for me to realize that I rarely kept my makes!
But, today, I am proudly sharing another DIY dress from my Jasmine pattern that I’ve fallen in love with just as much as my Giselle dress! They have got to my two favorite makes of the year so far! This pattern works just as beautifully in a solid color or a print. It’s such a flowing and feminine piece that doesn’t make me feel over or under dressed for most occasions. And, for me, that spells v-e-r-s-a-t-i-l-e!
It’s a great feeling to have pieces like this because I know that my purge, and all of it’s lessons that I learned, weren’t in vain!
If you’ve been around for a while, you know prints really weren’t my jam. But, I’ve learned that it’s not just about ANY print, it’s about the RIGHT type of print. t’s really been amazing for my wardrobe to incorporate more prints, even if they’re dainty prints which is what I’m learning that I prefer.
I found this baby pink and black polka dot fabric at Joann’s a couple months ago and fell in love with it at first site. If I could have found it in another color way, I’d have snatched that up as well.
As of late, my favorite fabric to work with are the flowier crepes. They transition well between warmer and cooler months and don’t require much maintenance.
