Theo B Camisole


I made this dress today.  Or, finished this dress today.  I screwed up so many times that it took me twice as long as it should have.  It's super comfortable and I don't ever want to take it off.  The pattern is Burda 7376. Really simple, but that's what I was looking for.  Something I could throw together in a day (although, with all the fixing I had to do, it actually took me two days).

I've been getting back into sewing again recently.  I went to school for fashion design for a year and decided it wasn't for me, but sewing has always been a passion of mine.  Maybe someday I'll turn it into something, but for now it's just fun.

The wrap I'm wearing is from a small boutique in Camden, Maine and I got it for my cousin's wedding.  My mom and I spent hours driving around Rockland and Camden looking for a sweater in this color, or something similar, and had no luck at all.  I was on the verge of tears from frustration when we found this little store hidden away in Camden.  This wrap is almost exactly what I was picturing in my head all day and I finally found it.  It's more pricey than I would normally spend, but my mom was nice enough to purchase it for me.

I don't know what it is about this photo, but I really love it.
