I hit a sewing bump 2 months ago. I lost all motivation to keep sewing. I stopped even trying to find a project to inspire me and then last week as I was cleaning out my closet I stumbled upon this 1950’s cocktail dress that I bought to fix up over a year ago. My fears of fixing it had sent it to the back of my closet where it had been forgotten.
It was riddled with holes. I started picking it apart piece by piece. This also allowed me to create a pattern out of the dress for future creations!
I created a lace overlay for all of the pieces, basted it on and then re-assembled the whole dress.
Once it was re-assembled I found I had created my dream cocktail dress out of what was once something I had at the bottom of the repair pile.
You can read more about this save over on my blog. In the meantime, I will be busy tackling that repair pile in hopes of finding another gem!
