Outfit 17/91: Myrtle dress (pattern by Colette) & Frye boots

Cowl neck dress + Frye boots (and cat).

I finished sewing my new dress! I used a pattern from Colette Patterns. It's called Myrtle and they recently had a sewalong, where a teacher posts instructions and photos on a blog and you can make your dress along with her (plus ask questions). 

The teacher also shared detailed instructions on making some fitting adjustments, which I followed. It is great to learn more sewing techniques to really make clothes that are perfect for me. When I make it myself, I can choose the fabric, style, fit, length - everything! 

Do you make any of your own clothes? It's fun and feels like a great accomplishment! I hope to continue to improve my skills and learn more about choosing the right fabrics. 

I love watching Project Runway and especially love it when the designers buy the wrong kind of fabric! I get to learn from their mistakes instead of my own.
