It's a long story.

A lot of my clothes wore at once, so I've been replacing them with my fabric stash. These dresses replaced some store-bought knit dresses that had reached the end of their lifespan.


First up was a new black dress.


I drafted the pattern myself.






Next, I cut into a thrifted galaxy print jersey sheet I'd been saving for some project. This turned out to be the project  Grin









Then, I went back and added pockets, because, pockets! I redrafted the pocket pattern piece to be a tad bigger than what I'd used before these projects. It's a little too deep now, but I'll live Smiley I also wish I'd made a couple other adjustments, but, overall, I guess these new closet additions turned out all right. They're comfy and, I think, pretty flattering. Plus, pockets!

Thank you so much!
It's always good to have fresh eyes take a look. Sometimes I stare at a project for so long all I see are the flaws  Roll Eyes
