Isn't pinterest such a wonderful evil?
The vaccume of my time - it just sucks it all up.
The cure for my boredom.
The site on which I saw a maxi dress (WITH SLEEVES!!) on a cute girl and clicked on the link, curious of where she could have bought such a find. Upon opening the girls blog page I realized that it was a tutorial on how to make the dress not where to buy it. A little disappointed I began to read the step by step instructions and by the end of the post I was filled with excitement. Could it really be that easy?! Sew, sew, sew, cut, cut, cut, cut and done!? I couldn't get in my car fast enough to head on over to the local Joann's to pick up my extra stretchy jersey knit fabric (a fabric that doesn't exist by the way, which made things a little confusing). After debating about what type of stretch-knit-type material to buy I took the plunge and bought something that reminded me of some cotton dance pants I owned in Jr. High. I picked a color, the material was cut and I was out of the fabric store. Headed home to start on my project filled to the brim with excitement.
And then I sewed three. straight. lines. And cut three holes. And cut a little off the bottom.
And I was done. No hemming. No pinning to a pattern.
Just sew, sew, sew, cut, cut, cut, cut and done.
It really was that simple
At that point I was overflowing with excitement, because I didn't screw anything up and it actually looked like a dress. And I'm actually going to wear it! This weekend! When I am hanging out on the white sandy beaches of MEXICO!!
Anyway it was magical.
You should make it.
Here's the link.
Hey there I am in my creation!!
Thank you Pinterest.
