IN ALL HONESTY, I WAS not planning on uploading these photos to the blog. They were taken during my break from work – sometime between me complaining about how uncomfortable my heels were and how heavily that chocolate muffin I ate for lunch was weighing on my stomach – and were meant to be displayed only on my Instagram. My phone, however, surprised me with its photo-capturing quality and, after some first-grade Photoshop levels and graphics mixing, I concluded that yes, these photos can pass as blog material.


DO YOU LIKE THE DRESS I am wearing in the photos? Did you know that I made it just a day before my second graduation party? Of course, for some crazy reason, that night I ended up wearing another dress that I had sewn before, but that's beside the point. My point is that a lot of people ask me how I learned to make my own clothes. Well, I had a great teacher growing up, the all-knowing mom. Whenever she had free time, my mom would always do something whether it was sewing, knitting, or crocheting and seeing that, it made me want to learn. Making clothes seemed fun and productive at the same time.
