Dress Reveal

I started this dress at the beginning of the summer. I was focussed on losing weight so I waited for a bunch of it to come off before I finalised it. As you can see, I had to take in several inches to fit it to my new figure. I also got up the courage to use the serger on it. It was a lot easier than I expected and I am thrilled with the results – I love how it turned out and the seams are so professional! I added a belt to help cinch it in at the

I know I’ve been quiet for the last while but I have been really getting the house organized and the projects moving! It seems I can’t do and blog at the same time.

It also didn’t help that my scanner/printer (which we haven’t used in years) isn’t working and I need to figure out why not and if I can fix it. I was able to find the software to download online but
