I read a quote earlier this week that said "amateurs try until they get it right, professionals try until they cant get it wrong" and it kind of stuck with me. I am constantly trying new things and once I complete them I am moving on to the next "project". While trying new things is not a bad thing, I need to stay put for a little while in one thing. I saw this super cute ombre maxi dress on revolve clothing and thought it would be perfect for summer, however when I saw the price tag I was not attracted anymore. It was a simple dress with a high price tag, I shop smart y'all. So I thought to myself, I know how to sew why not make my own version on the dress and call it a day. I have never dyed anything in my life but I was up for the challenge. From constructing the pattern down to dyeing it, I've learned what NOT to do next time around... and there will be a next time around. My recreation isn't perfect, BUT I am very happy with it. Can't wait to show you guys the dress when I get it all the way right.
