The Dress Discussion – "What’s Up with Wearing A Dress Everywhere?"

June 25, 2017   /   byCarolyn (Diary of a Sewing Fanatic)  / Categories :  Feeds
Two of my favorite bloggers recently wrote about how sewing and wearing dresses are discussed in the sewing blogging community. 

As a sewist who loves a dress for all of these reasons ~ easy to wear, a lot of creative opportunities to make, one piece to put on ~ I'm gobsmacked when other sewists opine that dresses are fancy. Especially since to me, dresses can be dressed up or down...worn with heels, flats, sandals, boots or sneakers and worn anywear...even the grocery store!

I also don't understand why dresses are confined to fancy events or church. I wear maxidresses to picnics, but fancy seems to be the word associated with dresses.

So what do you think? Are you a sewist who loves sewing and wearing dresses? Or are you a sewist who wears a dress ONLY when you have to? Are dresses part of your regular life, worn everywhere? Or do you sew a mixture of garment types?

Talk back to me because this is the Question of the Day!

...as always more later!

Did you know that 81% of all merchandise sold […]

A Very Merry Bra Making with Madalynne

There have been a few snowflakes this season, but just a coating here and there that didn’t ‘stick’ around for too long. Philly’s first true snowfall happened last Saturday, December 9th, at the last workshop of 2017. I know it sounds cliche, but it truly was the best (and merriest) way to close out yet…
