Perseverance Pays Off

Orange-dress My friend and partner-in-crime for many of my vintage shopping excursions, just completed her first "wear-outside-the-house" garment and wrote a beautiful post about its construction. She writes:

"I thought about all the time I'd put into making this dress, all the concentration and the frustration in ripping out seams and starting over, and how I had to turn to my friend for help and reassurance to persevere. And rather than focus on what went wrong, I realized that the only reason I ended up with something finished to wear was because of the love that went into making it."

Here's to the next dress!
