Over a month ago, I was invited to a summer outdoor wedding in Louisiana. Weddings have cake, so yes was the obvious answer, but whatever was I going to wear? I kept waffling back and forth on wearing a dress from my closet, or shopping for a new one. Indecisive me took her time mulling it over and still had nothing the week of the wedding. Shame on me, I know.
Two days before the wedding, I came across a blog post from OonaBalloona where she made a simple self-drafted pattern dress. I thought, with 3 yards of jersey I could do the same thing! And wouldn’t you know it, Hancock Fabrics started a 30% off knits and jersey sale that day, so it was my first stop after work. An evening of sewing later, and I had a dress for the wedding. It was a great choice, as it was hot and humid and although I was sweating the fabric of the dress didn’t show it.
