I started this dress back at the beginning of January as a test for my silk ballgown. I have finally finished it long after the silk dress. I find it funny how the starting order of projects and their completion can get completely switched around sometimes. But life is often like that. We have to switch and change our focus to other things that become more important
As much as I love blogging and sharing my sewing projects, there may come a time where I may need to step away from it for long periods of time or even permanently as Jessica Cangiano from Chronically Vintage has recently done. I know I will miss her presence in the online vintage community.
I don't plan to walk away any time soon, but I am having to reevaluate what I will prioritize in my life over the coming months. And it is not easy.
I so often second guess myself and the decisions I make. I hardly ever am really satisfied with my choices. I even have a hard time deciding what movie I want to watch for my birthday! I need to remember that whether the choices I make are the "right" ones or the "wrong" ones, God uses all things for my good, even the messiest, most complicated decisions.
With all of the complications of life right now and the consequential inability to sew, I am glad I made this dress, and I am also glad I took the time to work out the fit of the pattern.
I hope this blog won't suffer too much from my lack of sewing projects, but I will probably focus on design as that is much easier to work when all of life is upside down and not normal!
Sarah loves to sew, learn more about sewing, and create items with a vintage flair. Her arch enemy is clipping curves, and she has a tolerable relationship with the seam ripper.
