So yes, I’m thirty today. I don’t feel any different. Ten years ago, I thought I would be fat by age, thirty. That’s right. While most women are dying to be skinny, I want to gain weight. After two pregnancies and almost seven years of marriage, I still fit in clothes that I wore back in high school. The one thing I can’t complain about being skinny is that it motivated me to pick up sewing. I’ve actually made my very first dress, I guess a happy-birthday-to-me dress.
I’ve always just sewn for mis filimbianas here and it’s nice to have actually made something for myself. I got a pattern from the Selfish Seamstress who is actually very generous to share her patterns online! The pattern for this Coffee Date Dress is for a sleeveless dress so I added in my own sleeves and also the lining inside. I just can’t stand to see fraying in the dress so why not just hide them under a lining, right? And for the modest me, I lengthened the length of the dress altogether. I would much rather sit her and go on about the stuff I did to the dress but Z is whining for me and the rest of the house needs to be tidied up before B gets home from school for her to mess it all up again!
