Freedom dress

Added Nov 1, 2011

by Redsonia

Piedmont, Italy






This dress has its own small history: I decided to get myself free from corporate slavery and quit my job last Friday. To celebrate this event I made a dress in unusual for me colour. The pattern is from Burda 08/2011.

At least, now I have time to sew ;)))

    I love it! You are glowing. And wouldn’t you know, I did the same thing last Wednesday! My celebration pencil skirt isn’t as perfect on me as I’d like, so I’m giving it away here

      Carottesauvage, thank you so much for incouraging words. I should admit it was one of the most difficult but at the same time most important decision in my life. It feels like be awaken from eternal sleep.

    I wish I had time to sew!! Instead, I’m sitting around at work dreaming of sewing and checking out sewing blogs :-) Good luck with doing whatever makes you feel good!! (I sound like a commercial I guess, but really…) The dress is beautiful, and I love the color.

      Thank you for support! I enjoy every moment of my freedom. At this moment I am working at my next sewing project, from time to time looking at Burda style. I had a look at some of your projects, and I must admit that you are very talented and I like your style very much.

    First I want to saw how awesome and brave your decsion was, best of luck to you. Maybe one day I can do the same. Second I have wanted to make a jumper style dress for sometime now but I thought it would look to juvenile, but you look very grown up in your version, with the way you styled it. I’m brave enough to try that at least.

    wear this to your next job interviews and it won’t be long before you’re back working !! Love the colour, and the boots look great with it. I have made this dress for myself and have already started another one, this pattern is so versatile !

    Totally agree with the feeling :-). Very good dress, you should wear it to your next job anyway.
