THIS WAS NOT MADE BY ME
but by a friend of the family! It was for my sisters wedding.
I came across a picture of this dress that i liked while looking for a yr 12 formal dress, and saved it. Then this lady told me she could replicate it, I thought she did very well :) though i didn’t want it as short as the model’s cause it was a wedding.
It’s why i began to sew, amazed by people who could look at pictures and make clothes!
I thought I’d share the beginnings of my love of sewing, and possible help inspire others. Before the projects on Burda Style, I’d basically had no sewing experience!
