I've been designing (just drawing, though) clothes for about half a year now and decided its time to make something. For the past three months I've been figuring out what I want to make, starting as a purple and white striped dress into a black and white striped dress and then a black and purple dress. The black and purple is the final version. I painted a picture of it in watercolors, and then today I went to go buy fabric. I found EXACTLY what I wanted, and got all the fabric, needles, and thread for under fifteen bucks Anyway, I'm about to start cutting and sewing and hemming! This will be the first thing I've ever sewn and its all going to be done by hand so this is a pretty big thing for me I'll post pictures of the watercolor version of the dress as soon as my camera battery charges and pictures of the real version of the dress as I'm making it! Sort of a picture diary So I'm very excited and just thought I'd share!
