The back-to-school propoganda has started popping up everywhere. Brandon actually warned me not to go to Target unless I wanted to be surrounded by moody teenagers anxious about going back to school. Rather than thinking about school myself, I’ve made up a list of Fall 2017 sewing plans. They fall into two categories: special occasion dresses and mix-and-match basic separates.
Back in May two of my good friends from college got married. I knew I wanted to make a dress for the occasion, and the dress code was black tie optional. This make required some serious thought (and investment), so I went to my local fabric shop, Mulberry Silks for inspiration. I was only looking for ideas (silouette, color, fabric type), but walked out with the Burda 6994 pattern and 4 yards of a gorgeous Vera Wang sateen. Fortunately they have a student discount!
