Tribal Art + Confessions :)

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. ย Well since I have began sewing I have dared myself to venture out a bit .. and I\’m slowly learning what works. ….slowly… ๐Ÿ™‚
So i took a leap and purchased this GORGEOUS fabric from ย Sew Blessed.
ย If you want beautiful fabrics at a VERY affordable price( typically $4.00 – $5.00 a yard) .. shes your gal ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 !!

ย So this fabric…
ย 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.ย 
I used a old fitted dress pattern that I had drafted for my self and WALA! ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ … But its a great date night dress ๐Ÿ˜›

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 !!

  2. Your dress turned out beautifully! I agree with Vanessa this dress should make you want more color in your wardrobe. I love beautiful colors!


  3. Amazing dress! I am the same as you regarding colour; always played it safe until I started sewing again. Now I am getting more brave. I've recently made a dress in yellow and my next project is orange!! Well done with this dress, it's sos very you :)x
