sewing without a pattern

i’m good at following directions, maybe thats why it was fairly easy for me to learn to sew. but there comes a time when you’ve gained enough knowledge and its time to venture out and explore your own creativity:) so i attempted to do just that. this summer i fell in love with this style dress (i know, summer is almost over for most of you, but it still feels like the dead of summer here). i set aside some fabric i wanted to use and just stared at the pile EVERY time i went to sew. literally, it had been sitting there for at least 2 months.

so once i realized that football season has indeed begun, i reminded myself that it just means more late night sewing parties:) so in leui of watching the football game on saturday, i made this…

from without help! honestly, i pretty convinced it wasn’t going to turn out like i envisioned, but to my surprise, its pretty darn close:) i wish the elastic was a little higher, but nonetheless, i LOVE it. if only i had thought to take picture through the process:( i’m learning… maybe with round number two… oh there will be a a round number two for sure:)
