On Saturday we went to go see Wicked in Houston. It was O-MAZING! It was my first time to see it and my sister’s third or fourth. It really is that good.
Knowing that I had the show coming up I decided to try my hand at sewing again. It has been a while, but I’ve had this pattern forever (seriously, since 2006!). At a stop to Jo-Ann’s for my anniversary project I discovered this great navy, turquoise, and gold fabric. I like the color palate and how it is a bit like an ikat. And the best part…it was only $2.50 a yard (down from $10 a yard)! I was quite pleased with the end result but it was a bear getting there. I recruited the talents of my sis again and I think she did more of the sewing than I did. It looked simple enough, but with several pieces needing to be lined, etc. it was easy to get overwhelmed. I think I ended up with 24 pieces to put together for this little dress. The original pattern calls for more of a tea length skirt, but I wanted to go short for the summer and I’m glad I did!
