After many years of thrift flipping, and even more years of watching Project Runway, I finally decided to face my fear of rolled hems and invisible zippers, and try to sew clothing from scratch. I bought some vintage dress patterns from the 1950’s, and with the help of my trusty sewing machine, the DIY moms of youtube, and way too much caffeine, I managed to sew a brand new summer dress from scratch. And it looks pretty darn good, as long as you stay more than six feet away.
