Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's day to all you wonderful Mother's out there who know that being a mother is one of the hardest but most rewarding jobs on the planet!!

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.
