"i will try anyhow" dress



"I will try anyhow"* dress

"I will try anyhow"* dress







  • Created: november 2, 2007

  • Pattern: my own, but everyday i seem to find a picture of where the inspiration for this dress came from

  • Fabric: striped blue and white lightweight denim

  • Makes Me Think Of These Fond Memories: being struck with inspiration enough to design and sew this dress in a day, being proud of designing a dress simple enough to make in one day, having time away from tova while the neighbors pitched in to watch her, making a sleeve design that didn't make me curse its existence.

  • And, The Not-So-Fond Memories: having to rip out a couple seams, neglecting tova, having to use the butt-holer function on my sewing machine, hand-sewing buttons on the dress (am THE laziest hand-sewer on the planet).

  4. thanks everyone! i've been pulled in so many directions lately, so this blog has had to sit alone in a corner for a couple months. that's why i've been missing out on all your lovely comments. i'm such a neglectful blog-mother -- this baby needs some attention!
