   All winter I've been creating, I've swapped nights of novels and cocoa—for 3am crafting powwows while listening to the great works of Charles Dickens and watching Shark Tank over my shoulder. I yearn for spring.

  Over the years I've developed a deep and unfathomable love for sewing pretty things. My mom bought me my first sewing machine when I was 4; for me, life without a Singer would seem rather— incomplete.

   I love the fact that this dress is multi-functioning and sexy. It's made out of organic cotton, so it's SUPER soft. I used an ombre technique I found on Pinterest. I'd love to do the same thing with yoga pants!

 Lemme know what you guys think!

It's so pretty!  I love the soft pleating at the seam.  It looks very effortless, though I'm sure you put a lot of thought and work into it.

Aislynn, thank you for the compliment! From the little bit of information on Craftser, I gather your a seamstress yourself? I love splurging on high quality materials, and creating something simple and comfy! Cheesy

No problem Cheesy
This makes me want to start sewing some clothes for myself. But I need to get rid of old clothes that I no longer wear before I do that.
