New York, New Yo...
my “bombshell dress”, from burda style’s bustier dress pattern and gertie’s FABULOUS course over at craftsy!
it took about 3 full days of sewing to accomplish, and it’s the best made thing in my closet. i’m hoping to wear it out one day this week as it is my BIRTHDAY WEEK! (yes, i get a whole week).
i love this dress so much it hurts. it was a lot of work, but so much fun it didn’t seem like work— and so rewarding. i did many little dances of joy.
i have a full review of the course & more pics over at my blog: gertie + craftsy = HEAVEN
