Earlier in the year, I made a dress inspired by Miranda Hobbes from Sex and the City/And Just Like That. I remembered that Miranda was my favourite character of the four friends…
After the fanfare of week one, I got deflated pretty quickly on week two. … Posting every day on Instagram has to be fun and quite honestly this week it became a drag.
I first cut out this bra in June of 2018 after I had lurked through BrAugust the previous summer and promised I would make myself a bra.
My typically over-ambitious sewing plans are proving slower to yield fruit than I intended but I do have a new Finished Object to share.
