When sewing, I can make and control what happens, to decided what will be come of something, what path it will take. However in life you don’t always have this same control, the things that you want to “make” happen at times don’t result in that which you’ve hoped. There are times when things are out of your control and you must work with what you have left-over.
This is the sometimes the case when it comes to sewing as well, due to current financial restraints, I’ve had to hold back in buying new fabric and patterns. With that thought in mind I’ve decided to piece together left-over pieces of fabric that I have from earlier projects. The first of dress project is this Project Runway Simplicity pattern pictured here:
I will be making the blue dress pictured in the top right with a Dark Jade material such as this:
with an off white linen trim like the one pictured here:
Once I have finished I will be sure to post a picture of my left-overs. Until then try to keep yourselves together, as I do, one stitch at a time.
