I didn’t actually learn to sew until I signed up for fashion design school at age 21. While there, I learned to make patterns and drape but my sewing skills were pretty atrocious and they sort of just sped through the one sewing class we took there.. I remember sending my projects to the dry cleaner to have them put in the zippers and buttonholes.
Cute, but but my sewing was not nearly advanced enough to make a wedding dress!
Which brings me to my story for today….
In fact, it was the first time doing many of these techniques for me.
Here are a few photos below of the sewing project that I feel turned me into a real seamstress.
In looking back, it probably wasn’t a good idea to take this kind of chance in making something I wasn’t confident in, especially on such a special day as a wedding.
I guess ignorance is bliss!
