Created with fd's Flickr ToysFor some odd reason I thought I would sew a dress. I bought the fabric and pattern to make a versatile Uniform Project dress. I used to sew quite a bit but because of the frustration factor gave it up. I do think that was the best choice, can you hear the frustration in my typing because it has all rushed back in. I am first sewing a dress out of another fabric, hoping that I can have it all figured out by the time I sew with the good fabric, but at this moment I am thinking of scrapping the one that I am close to finishing and seeing if I can find a seamstress to sew my dress.
Not sure how this will turn out... keep you posted.

You can go hear to see more Mosaic Monday

Amanda, You can do it, just pick something simple and timeless.
No you don't Niki, ugh, actually I do sew for my house and that stuff comes out great, so it is good to know how to sew for that reason. Following a pattern is what gets me.
Misssew, thanks for the comment and the link.
