Feast your eyes on this!

“When I learned to sew, I forgot how to cook.” ~Author Unknown

Firstly, look at the fabric.


Isn’t that a pretty color? Can you blame me for buying it?

After my last dress I thought I’d take it up a notch with McCall’s 5752.

I’ve had my eye on this pattern for quite some time now. Although I wanted to rush and make as many things as I could (in anticipation of my trip), I forced myself to slow down and pay close attention to my technique. I tried not to cut corners. I couldn’t get side tracked with wanting to finish a set amount of items. I had to focus on my long-term goal (learning to sew like a professional).
So keeping my goals in mind I took my time. I took no short cuts. And what do you know? I surprised myself!!!

Notice my bag (wink, wink)

Aren’t you proud of me? I’m stepping up my game folks!!!
Admittedly, it’s far from perfect BUT its way better than I have EVER done. I am on a roll!!!

I now have 2 pretty dresses for my trip! Do you see why cooking is no longer a priority?

Till we meet again,

    You should Totally start sewing. We could become sewing buddies!!!
