I Saw It...I Wanted It...I Made My Own

This is my newest sewing project. I am so extremely excited about it. I have been working on so many sewing projects lately. It seems like anytime I am not at work I am usually making something or buying supplies to make something. I am going to have a whole new wardrobe by the time fall rolls around. Anyways, back to my dress. I was inspired to make this the moment I saw this dress from Nanette Lepore. I loved the colors and textures of this dress so I decided that I could sew up something like it. I have had the fabric for forever, but I was nervous about starting it since I had never made a dress from scratch before. I am so happy with how it turned out!

DIY: Cutout Sneakers

I can't believe how long it's been since I last posted here. One or two days before posting quickly turned into much much longer. I have been working on so many different projects and I have also been putting a bunch of hours in at work. One of the projects that I just finished last night were these shoes. I used a tutorial that was on Refinery 29. I am so happy with these. I wore them tonight with a dress that I also made.
