Today's theme features Summer Wedding fashion. I sewed up a wedding guest dress and got to wear it to a friend's wedding.
I will admit I started with a bit of "sewist's block" trying to come up with what I wanted to sew. I'm not sure if that's a thing, but it should be. Maybe I just coined a new phrase, huh? Sometimes I am faced with all the possibility of a blank canvas and I don't know where to start. Add to that the pressure of being on a fashion inspiration blog tour. Eek!
When I found this beautiful, two-toned lace fabric from Sew Vagabond, it started to come together. Lace is very popular right now and this floral, pastel pink lace really spoke to me of a romantic summer wedding. With this fabric in mind, I wanted something with a simple shape that kept the focus on the fabric. (Bonus was that it was also faster to sew, since I wasted so much time trying to decide what to make!)
I used the Sew Over It Ultimate Shift Dress, which I had been wanting to try for a while. It has few seams and a simple hook and eye or button and loop closure, so it is relatively easy to sew.
