sew so

I am so very in love with this dress pattern.

And, of course, its vintage-inspired styling.

I am learning to sew, you see--learning to distract myself and focus on something apart from words (because words have become both a solace and a tool of this worrying thing--a form of escape as easily as a form of restriction). I haven't--yet--perfected stitching, or cutting, or pinning--but I will get there. Because where I lack skill and talent and instinct, I most certainly do cherish my optimism--however much it sometimes wavers.

(The dress is made using this Colette pattern--and maybe, just maybe, I'll one day make it).

  1. Good for you! I've thought many days about buying a sewing machine and learning. My mom had known how but now I have no one to teach me and I'm not always very good at learning a new skill on my own. That is the perfect dress pattern though, very elegant and cute. Both in one!
