This is the first thing I’ve sewn in 9 years! I learned how to sew in middle school and only made a couple things. When I was younger sewing wasn’t “cool”, so I stopped. A few months ago I found burda.com and I was impressed by all their modern patterns. I’m really inspired every time I come to the website.
Anyways, I think this was a good project to get back into sewing and I’m really excited about making sewing a hobby for me. This dress had its challenges (matching all the seam lines, putting in a zipper for the first time, and using lining) and I had to make a lot of alterations along the way, but I’m happy with how it turned out. So I’m going to control myself from pointing out every flaw I see in the dress and say it was a successful return after all these years!
