SEWING | Washi Dress... finally!

I can't believe it's been almost 2 years since I got my sewing machine and nearly as long since I purchased the Washi Dress Sewing Pattern.

I promptly printed the pattern pages and assembled them, so the pattern has been all ready to go (along with some gorgeous fabric), but for some reason, I just haven't been able to get motivated for the sewing part. So, imagine my excitement when Libby of Truly Myrtle announced a Washi Dress sew-along

Do you want to join the fun and sew yourself a new Washi Dress? Libby will be posting daily on Instagram and Facebook to walk us through the pattern to sew a new dress in "baby steps" over the course of 13 days (February 12-24) - it's going to be SO much fun! Full details are in the current issue of the Truly Myrtle Mini-Mag (you can subscribe right here), along with some tips for actually getting yourself to sit down and sew. 

Getting myself in front of my machine to sew is often no easy feat. Sometimes, even when I really want to sew, need to sew, I just can't manage to sit down and get started. It feels like I don't have the time. So, how can we get started? How can we get sewing done? ~Libby

Yup, I can relate to each and every hurdle listed. So, after realizing that I'm not alone in my struggle and getting some great tips from Libby for sewing success, I'm all in and ready to go! I'll be quickly tidying up my sewing workspace (and resisting the overwhelming urge to actually clean and organize) so I can start start sewing myself a new dress on February 12th!

I'll be sharing my fabric selection and progress along the way on Instagram and Facebook. If there's anyone that can get me excited and motivate me make time to finally sew this dress, it's Libby! I hope you'll join the fun and sew yourself a Washi Dress, too!
