Thrifted Dress Restyle
This was my first time really using my dress form as a guide and working on it. It made everything a lot easier and I don't understand why I never did it before (duh!). Using the dress form made it possible to get rid of the bulk from the top half and not need the elastic at the waist anymore. I have never been able to get that right. I also learned how to use my rolled hem foot and it made it so easy that I'm sad that I feared it for so long.
I couldn't be more excited about the things I learned, even if this dress is less than awesome. Maybe the fact that it was a little less than awesome freed me from the fears I had about trying these things before. Even if I never wear it, there's no loss because I learned so much!
