Something Pretty

Lately, I have been overwhelmed by the desire to make something pretty. A beautiful dress with filmy fabrics… layers of tulle or silk, delicately gathered and draped, the kind of confection that takes your breath away and just makes you want to touch it. It’s been ages since I sewed any apparel. For the past couple of years, if I break out the sewing machine at all, it’s to sew something simple and domestically oriented. Mostly straight line sewing on woven fabrics. I used to sew figure skating dresses, and that was fun. Even still, there are a lot of constraints when sewing something that’s essentially athletic apparel. I want to let loose and give my imagination the reigns. I keep stumbling across all sorts of pretty inspiration online and it’s becoming harder and harder to find a reason why I shouldn’t indulge this little dress-making fantasy of mine.
