Below is a summer dress that I finished last week. So exciting when the fitting part is over with. Notice the collar is a hand dyed fabric & the rest of the dress is a challis. Challis is a fabric that drapes beautifully & flows with your movements. The buttons are covered with the same hand dyed fabric. This dress is from Style pattern #2440. My husband likes it when I wear dresses so, I'll wear it this weekend when my husband is around.
So I then started another dress & then hit a road block. Wait a minute, I already have too many little black dresses. This little black dress is a Vogue pattern #8648 & is made of a linen type fabric. It looks lifeless to me & needs some type of decorative element that will bring it to life. I'll have to play with some ideas of how to accomplish this. I'll introduce a new fabric that will contrast yet, compliment the linen type fabric. Fabric manipulation is the direction I'm going to take with the new fabric that I decide to use.
Below is the stack of fabric sitting on my sewing room floor. I need to refold it & get it up & off the floor. I think this is what is blocking my creativity. I can't seem to decide what to do with my little black dress. It's time to clean up my space so I can get my creativity flowing.
It's a good thing to clean up your sewing area from time to time. When you come back to your sewing projects, you're able to approach what your creating with great energy & can focus so much better.
So whether you're sewing garments or quilting, taking breaks are a good thing.
