Early lessons in fabric choices, preparation, and celebrating a wedding!

While I’m just starting this blog, some of these posts are out of order, but it doesn’t hurt to revisit things I’ve learned with past projects. I had a friend from childhood get married in San Francisco and I wanted something fun to wear to the wedding that would be comfortable and fit well. This was one of my earlier Mood fabric choices and second dress created since this all started. I wanted to get right to the fun part (sewing) so I didn’t wash the fabric… And thus, the hemline is pretty wobbly because of course it shrunk in funny directions. It’s a little hard to see but this is a princess cut top with a very (too) full skirt. The fabric was also quite scratchy (maybe I bought it in the outdoor section? I have yet to learn what I did wrong) so I hand lined it with a softer cotton. It’s still cute and did the trick, but probably not something I will wear super often even though the print is so cute.
