Ankara Pencil Maxi

Monday, May 14, 2018

IMG_0853 I was supposed to be sleeping Saturday night, then after a mild case of insomnia sets in, I decided to ditch the sheets and sew instead. This is the pencil dress I made and I couldn't wait to wear it. The whole time I was making it, I just knew it will go well with a white shirt. Then I went to pick up a white top and the first thing that caught my eye is this top which I got over a year ago and haven't had the chance to wear it.

IMG_0854I actually like the midi length even though it was a mistake. I wanted something right below my knee. If you sew at all, then you know sewing with patterns can be tricky especially when you want to showcase the patterns and  align them perfectly. You also always use more fabric than you need, with most if it going wasted. I cut the length longer to align my pattern and my plan was to cut it shorter ones the dress was done. I tried it on halfway and decided to keep the length.

Also, is it just me or its normal for your feet to shrink with weight loss? I started my fitness journey over a year ago and my feet have noticeably gotten smaller. These basic black pumps are one of my fave but I nearly fell four times while wearing them because they just kept falling off. I have always worn size 8.5 but with all my new shoes purchases, I go for 8 now.
