I am officially in love with shift dresses and I can see myself wearing them all the time in the coming weeks. The best thing about the shift shape is tgat it is like a blank canvas and you can make your imagination come to life with so many sewing techniques.
I have also decided to do a selfish sewing week, and sew things for myself that I have been dreaming in my head for sometime. So from October 1st to the 7th I’ll be posting 7 makes for myself.
The first piece for the Selfish Sewing week is the Ruby Octagon Dress. One of my favorite colors is Red and I believe it’s ideal to start a challenge with one of your favorites.
Fabric – Red Stretch Satin from the stash
Pattern – New Look 6145
Trims – Invisible zipper and Octagon shaped border for embellishment (sourced from Colombo-SL)
Sewing Time – 4-5 hours + half hour to hand sew the border
There’s a saying that says “Red is the color of women daring to exist intensely” and I believe i’m one of them. Hope you all like my Ruby Octagon Dress. Until tomorrow when you can see my second piece for the selfish sewing week…
