Next I was inspired by bloggers doing D.I.Y studded projects especially Karen from wheredidyougetthat.com So I ordered some studs online and started poking here and there. By the end of it by thumbs hurt immensely! I'm starting to think I needed some actual tools. Lesson learnt.
With those lessons learnt I decided to inquire about some sewing lessons near my house. The much older and well experienced ladies welcomed me into the workshop and took me under their wing. With much help and apparently natural skill I made some linen-high-waisted-wide-leg-pants. Here's how they turned out...
As lessons are now over for the year, fingers crossed I can remember what I've learned so far and hopefully continue to be creative this holidays. These pants are actually the first piece I've made from a pattern, I was getting ahead of myself thinking I could go all pro and pretend I was on 'Project Runway' with all the draping, cutting and sewing - which didn't really go the way I planned.
P.s sorry for being possibly the worst blogger all week.
P.p.s I will definitely post about Angelica's formal tomorrow when I get the pics.You won't want to miss it!
