New Project!

This week, I will be scouting for fabric to make a new dress!  This will be my first attempt to make a dress for myself free-hand, and I am modeling it after Lily’s dress in this scene of “How I Met Your Mother.”  I imagine it won’t be too difficult–and here’s hoping I can find some fabric at the thrift store!  This time around, I’m going to try to only purchase elastic new, and the rest I am going to try to upcycle from other clothing!  This will be an exciting adventure for me, and I will continue to post whatever updates I can.

Stay tuned!

About lilyellowbird

I am a 22-year-old stay-at-home mom (returning to school in the fall of 2011) who is choosing my family, sewing, crafting, repurposing, and general life stuff to occupy my time. Here you will find updates on the new and exciting (Zooey just got two teeth!) and different things that I am trying (dyeing fabric a nice teal blue for a circle skirt). Since Wardrobe Refashion is now closing, I will not be able to sign up and post new things on their website, but here is where I would like to publicly "take the pledge", so to speak, and rework, refashion, and otherwise make my family's clothing for the next two months. I will post photos once a week (if at all possible) of new projects, etc. Stay tuned!
