I spent my winter break from school squirreled away in my sewing room. I finished my coat, made a skirt, stitched together a handbag, and just this weekend I put together an ottoman slipcover for a customer.
And I ended up in this:
"What did you do?!?"
"Oh, I did too much sewing over break."
"Um, what? Sewing?"
And then they back away slowly because no one is that weird.
So here I sit in a thumb splint with nothing to do but think of my next project. My recent creations have given me some confidence and I feel ready to tackle something else a little harder. I kind of want to make a dress and I've started searching for my inspiration.

I think I could do it, lace and all. I'm not a skinny girl (like Sabrina Soto...or anyone on tv for that matter). I wonder how the dress will fit my full sized figure. And I'm unsure about the belt. I could turn the belt into more of a sash, or not use it at all. Still, I hate to go out and spend the money on pretty fabric and spend my time on a dress that will be unflattering.
Anyone out there have any thoughts?
