Meet up with Christine HaynesMagazine Dirty, and The Bronx the whole drive, so by the time I got out of the car I was pumped up and ready for some fabric shopping! At 2:00 I met Christine Haynes at the FIDM campus.
Immediately, I felt at ease with her. She is one of those people who are so genuine and sweet, I wondered why I even worried. I felt like I had known her forever! We talked nonstop about sewing, our personal lives, and some of you bloggers :)
Chelsea dress. I was super excited about wearing it to meet her and I think she was surprised! Oh, it was cool, when I was walking to meet Christine a random lady on the street stopped me and told me she loved my dress :) I'd also like to add that this is the most comfortable dress ever and the fact that it was so comfortable during a three hour car ride made it ever more awesome.
After Islands Fabric, Christine and I parted ways. I had SUCH a blast with her and made her promise to call me when she comes up north. I am happy that I can call Christine my friend, she is one of the most amazing people I know.
Here are a couple closeups of the dress I made. I can't recommend this dress enough! The directions are so straightforward, it was easy to sew, and it's soooo comfy! I love how the look is so different from my muslin due to the different fabric. I used shirting from Mood and it feels so soft against my skin, it's amazing how much of a difference nice fabric can make!
