Today I’m wearing my new dress that I’ve made in the weekend. If you look closer, the fabric has some green, orange and violet threads; it’s a fine boucle fabric with a brushed finish on the wrong side so it doesn’t need a lining. I’ve paired my new dress with a green fur vest that I've made some years ago, the belt was a gift from my sister in-law and the bag is vintage Furla. This dress is optimal for layering, since the fabric is medium weight yet it has short sleeves… I’ve been seeing a lot of dresses worn over pants so I also plan on wearing it with leather leggings; I can also picture it with skinny jeans and a jeans shirt underneath. Have a great day everybody!

Thank you dear Zhanna! I made the dress during the weekend; I sewed like a storm to have it finished in time for wearing it today :)

WOW! You made it yourself?? You are a STAR! How did you learn sewing? Are you self taught or attended sewing courses?
Teresa Leite
I'm self-taught; I've been sewing for myself since I was a teenager :). It's my favorite hobby and a kind of an obsession too, LOL!
Zhanna E
Teresa! Respect! Can't wait to see more of your beautiful creations, you should have probably become a designer! <3<3<3
