I had scraps of pleather left from my last DIY and couldn't let it go to waste. Of course I had to incorporate it into my new dress! ;)
I commonly get asked where I buy my patterns or what kind of patterns I'm using. I draft all my patterns from scratch and they do take a long time to do accurately. To give you an idea of how long this dress took me to make: I spent 2 days drafting the pattern and 2 days to sew the dress. I do enjoy the process since I end up with a one of a kind dress that fits me the way I like. Also awhile ago, I complained about the invisible hem on my sewing machine and that the results were not completely invisible. Well I did the invisible hem by hand this time and I love it so much better!
