Witty one-liner goes here

Sunday, June 30, 2019: Hi friends! Can you believe we are already halfway through the year (and this challenge)??!!! Ahhh, time flies when you're having fun, living life. I wanted to take a moment to thank y'all for sticking by me through this. It's been a new experience, going from blogging every blue moon (like once a month if that), to making msyelf write weekly. Through it, I've gained a lot more experience, for sure. I've pushed myself to do things I didn't want to do. I've become more comfortable with various techniques. I've GROWN tremendously, as a sewist. Y'all rock for inspiring me, believing in me, rooting for me, and supporting me. Every comment on my Facebook page or Instagram about a post of mine makes me smile so hard.

For this week, I'm sewing velvet. Yes, I know it's blazing hot outside, but I found some GORGEOUS velvet at Hobby Lobby yesterday, and a pattern test is wrapping up finals that it would be GLORIOUS for. I simply HAD to have it for this specific dress, though I probably won't wear it until fall.

Isn't she a BEAUTY? 😍 I'll be back later in the week (maybe) with some progress shots, if I remeber to take them. If not, I'll catch yall next week with the finished product!

Sunday, July 7, 2019: Sooooo, I finished sewing this up back on Monday, and had pics ready. The pattern, unfortuntely, won't be releasing until next week, so I can't share full pics yet. It's soooo lovely though, and I can't wait to share the entire thing with y'all!

Enjoy the sneak until next week 😜 Full photos will be added at a later date, as well as on IG!
