So… one of Jared’s friends has invited us to his wedding in September and I decided to be prepared and make an outfit: cobalt blue two piece gown. In my day-to-day sewing adventures I get to sew pants and blouses, tops and skirt, a jacket once in a while, but very rarely I get to create something super sophisticated and elegant for a very special occasion. My last special occasion gown was my wedding dress and this time this is a dress to attend Charlie’s wedding.

I think it is quite simple, yet sophisticated and you can easily accessorize it to feature different color accents: blush, green, black and maybe white. You can sew a sash in different color, maybe a shawl or colorful jacket. Endless possibilities, I love when clothes in my wardrobe have functionality and I can get a good wear out of them. After all, sewing your own wardrobe is more time-consuming and time is a resource that you cannot reverse. I definitely prefer seeing that time invested in my wardrobe is well paid off by wearing those garments over and over, and falling in love with them every time I wear it!
