And I have several projects in the magazine! I'd like to introduce you to:
the Transitional Dress
and the Retro Restyled Blouse
And this dress was easily the hardest project I've ever tackled. In fact, deep in the midst of it I thought I had bitten off more than I could chew. I had a really hard time grading the pattern myself, only to turn it in and find out that I didn't even need to because they started offering pattern grading on project submissions. I almost wanted to cry when the editor told me that. I also made up two versions, since they wanted to see some changes to the neckline. I think the version above was first. Maybe? It all runs together.
Anyways, I'm really proud of myself for submitting the sketch of the dress and seeing my idea to the finish. I'm a little wary of going through the process again, because I sure got torn down a lot before I built myself back up. But it's still exciting to see it all shake out in the magazine :)
