I bought this 40’s shirtdress pattern a number of months ago from So Vintage Patterns, plus this beautiful red checkered fabric to make it out of. I had a specific event that I was planning to wear it to, and worked pretty steadily on it for a while. Part way through it became clear that I wouldn’t finish it in time, as I need to adjust the size a bit. A Dress a Day posted recently about the different types of sewers, and it made me realize that I am a “make it today, wear it tonight” type! Without somewhere to wear it, I loose my motivation, so this dress has been lying in my sewing room half finished, taunting me with how beautiful it will be one day! I am posting about this in the hopes that sharing it with you will motivate me to finish so that I can show off the finished product. I hope I am not the only one who approaches projects this way!
