Behind on @bimbleandpimble #bpsewvember but feeling 'sew' glamorous!
Jumping in at #day17#day18#day19 and #day20 😄 with a couple of terrible selfies because I am honestly terrible at taking them. 😅
17 : Impulse Buy : So I made a floor-length, off the shoulder mermaid gown for a black tie event THE DAY BEFORE I had to fly out for said event, all because my dear hubs saw a sewing pattern & said it would look great on me. So I bought the pattern, then asked for courage & help from the wonderful sewing commmunity, made it in about 5 hours, packed, slept a few hours, then got on a plane. Technology is amazing! It puts sewing patterns immediately in my hands and helps me to find the fabric I need in my city RIGHT NOW because IMPULSES. 😂
18 : Color Palette : BLACK. Always black. Or if it is not around, dark solids, like wine, pine, gray, and navy. GOLD accents because it adds a touch of luxury and pizzazz to any outfit. ✴🌟 19 : Motto : My approach to sewing is comfort and love. Beauty comes when fashion succeeds. Is it comfortable? Do I love it? If both can be answered with a yes, then I am happy. And happy people are beautiful. 😊
20 : Luxury : Splurging on quality fabric that will make a garment shine and make you feel like a million bucks. My friends and family saw the dress and were amazed by the fit, construction, and overall quality of it. 😍 Great fabrics are every bit of luxury: the way it feels, the way it comes together, and the way it makes you feel is priceless.
