Once a while, I want to be fast in my sewing so I try to skip steps. Sometimes, the results turn out to be below my expectation. ―(T_T)
I was attracted by this brown printed fabric but the man-in-the-house thought the colour too dull. In my impatience to prove otherwise, I went straight to sewing. The result was a very simple but dull dress. ( >_<)
Disappointed, I left the dress in my project basket for some time. Unable to decide what to do with it.
Last month I received a box of sketching pencils from my sister. I was at a lost where to start as I haven’t drawn anything for a long time. ｢(ﾟﾍﾟ) Then I thought why not draw the outfits in my dollybird magazines first. After I have finished them, I proceeded to the outfits I like on the internet and in my manga. When I am sketching the outfit, I am also thinking through how I should sew the outfit.
Soon I have an idea for this dress. With the sketch done, I dismantled the dress and resewed it. Piece by piece. Step by step.
And this is the result. I’m happy with it and the man-in-the-house said it’s much better than before. (^_^) Lesson learnt.
