Why Do We See Flaws Where Others Do Not?
I love dresses, especially summer dresses. As I progress on my sewing journey one area that is difficult to get right is the bodice. I find getting a bodice to fit is more difficult than pants! And, that is why I like to sew easy summer dresses.
Sleeveless dresses are perfect for the beginner seamstress, no worry about getting the sleeves in right. And, sleeveless dresses come in a variety of styles. Choose a fitted sleeveless dress for work and pair it with a light weight shrug for the cool office. Or my favorite is the tent dress.
The image of me above is in a tent style dress. This is amazing to sew, there are no darts, zippers or fitting to deal with. It’s the perfect summer dress! And, if you don’t want to deal with fitting issues this is the style for you (and me). I made a belt to cinch it in, but it is great without too.
I think it’s time for me to woman-up and take a compliment like a big girl. Own it and be proud, right?
My homework for today is next time someone compliments me on something I’ve made and I feel the need to pick apart every flaw seen or unseen I’m going to STOP, and just say thank you.
How do you take a compliment? Let me know on the blog.
