Now presenting...

I'm so excited to share my first commissioned work! A faculty member saw my work and asked if I would be willing to make a dress similar to my homecoming dress. This dress is mostly my design, but based off of other dresses and patterns.

Sewing for others is much more difficult than I thought--when I sew for myself, it is easy to see whether the piece will fit or not, and I can easily make adjustments as I go. But working off solely someone's measurements is difficult because you can't do this! Measurements on flat fabric don't always translate. But, after several fittings, the dress finally worked :)
