So I have a confession ........

I am afraid of color ... there I said it .....
Those that know me know that my closet consist mostly of earth tone colors and blacks... Until i started sewing that's all I would buy. I just never knew the right colors to wear... so rather than get it wrong ... I played it safe.  Well since I have began sewing I have dared myself to venture out a bit .. and I'm slowly learning what works. ....slowly... :)


So i took a leap and purchased this GORGEOUS fabric from  Sew Blessed.

 If you want beautiful fabrics at a VERY affordable price( typically $4.00 - $5.00 a yard) .. shes your gal :) Follow her on face book for updates on when she post new fabrics... They go VERY QUICK so be ready. It is definitely worth it !!

 So this fabric...
 I loved the fabric but the challenge was cutting it so that the pattern wasn't altered . I think I was pretty successful in that. 






I used a old fitted dress pattern that I had drafted for my self and WALA! :) I added bias tape to the sleeves and color to finish the look off . I really LOVE how this turned out ...granted I cant really wear it to work :) ... But its a great date night dress :-P













As I use more color I am slowly riding myself of the fear . I figure Ill never know what works or doesn't if I don't try it ...


























Until Next Time !!
XOXOXO

  4. You look amazing! Sometimes a colour like this can show that those 'safe' colours are just wasted opportunities. :)
