I'm not much of a Summer girl. Not this Summer over here. It's too hot for the poor me. I like Autumn best, I like Spring, but I don't like Summer that much; I used to love Winter, but it kills me now.
Somehow though, even knowing Winter's still here, I'm only thinking and imagining Summer clothes.
It's been a while since I sewed for myself. I guess the last thing I made for me was the dress for my cousin's wedding last year. I might have done a small refashion here or there, but a full garment I don't do for ages. Or at least it feels like so.
I remember I felt like I didn't have a lot of interesting clothes last Summer. I mean, I do have a lot of pieces, I just don't think they'd make sense together. I missed skirts and dresses, so last year yet, I started planning some summer dresses refashions. I had this pink top my niece gave me, I wore it a few times but I just couldn't feel too confortable with it. And I needed dresses, right?
What to do? Grab a stripe of black knit fabric I had here for ages, and just attach one to another. I started it last year, I did cut the stripe and pin it to the top, but that's it. It just stood there, to finish until a couple of days ago. I finally sewed it on the machine and I also did a little altering on the stripes, I disliked the wood rings on it... balhhh... So after all these months and though I won't be wearing it so soon, I am happy I got myself a brand new dress. Too bad it is too cold to model it for you!
I even created a colour blocking or whatever that is!!! hahaha... I'm sooooo away from fashion!
Anyway, another YAY for me for completing a started project and going through my stash and own closet! =)
