Sewn From Scratch #1

Hello! I want to  share this with you finally. For those of you who follow me on FB or Twitter, you may have seen little sneak peeks of this dress, but I wanted to provide a more descriptive post. So, I made this baby from scratch and I actually love it! To make it, I used Simplicity pattern 2209. It was pretty easy to use. I did have to make some adjustments to the pattern because I have a short torso.The fabric I used was a printed linen from JOAnn Fabrics that I bought about a year ago. The print is fresh and fun. And the blue is so vibrant. I think it's my favorite dress in my closet right now. And I made it! I really hope to enhance my sewing skills and take on more Sewn from Scratch projects. So look out for them! No worries to you refashion lovers. More refashions to come as well! Take Care. -C.C.
