After filming the last video, we both exhaled. Haha! We have some important household business to tend to over the next few weeks. After that’s all settled, we’ll resume filming tutorials of some of the outfits I’ll be sewing for myself. I also have something else up my sleeve, but I’m not ready to speak of it just yet–still in the planning stages. Because I decided to take a break from sewing for the weekend after the Course ended, I am sharing another “oldie but goodie” with you today. I made this dress last year as part of my September “Member of the Month” run in Mimi G Style’s facebook group. During that month I challenged myself to see how many outfits I could make in a month. I shocked myself and completed 13 pieces. No, that was not a typo. I sewed 13 garments in one month. It was actually a lot of fun. My mojo was on FIRE! Haha!
I chose this dress because the neckline and shoulder give it a vintage flair (my opinion). I decided to sew View C without the contrast because I fell in love with this fabric and thought it would make a statement on its own. I rounded off the “v” in the neckline because I wanted a scoop neck instead.

Beginner’s Sewing Course
The sewing course has come to an end. If you’ve been able to follow along and complete the projects, then Congratulations! If not, then continue to work at your own pace and enjoy the process while you learn. With six projects to complete, I believe you have enough to keep you busy. At this point you should be able to go out and start purchasing patterns of your choice to practice what you have learned. If you want to become better at your craft, you MUST practice. If you continue to sew and practice what you have learned in this course, then you will be ready to join me when I post tutorials in the future. If you are new to this blog, then you may begin the Course HERE. I will return with more tutorials later, for both beginners and intermediate sewers. Have fun creating your garments and thank you so much for joining the course and sewing with me.
Thanks for stopping by!
Remember: When you live in your DESIGN, it is from there that you SHINE!
