It has been a little over a week since I began using the homemade deodorant. I love it! I have had no odor whatsoever and my underarms actually look healthier. I’m very satisfied with it. I highly recommend switching.
I have been a bit neglectful of my blog the last couple of days because I’ve been busy thinking about making a dress. I went to the store and bought a pattern and fabric. Lavender is my favorite color FYI 🙂 A couple of days later, I bought fabric scissors and today I bought the measuring tape. I have one, but it is way too small, so it’s basically useless for making clothes.
Tonight I cut out the pattern and laid it all out on the fabric that I bought. It took over an hour to do that. I had to make sure the lines were perfect. After taking my measurements though, I freaked out because according to the pattern case I am a size 12. That’s not right at all. It’s weird because the complete measurements on the actual pattern are much truer to size, so I am making a size 8.
Anyway, I’m going to make my own Lolita dress. I have no money, so this is my compromise 🙂
I don’t know why I didn’t make something out of a pattern before. For so may reasons, it’s the perfect hobby for me. There’s a lot to figure out and it’s not exactly easy. It requires patience, which is something I need to work on. Even so, the fact that it requires so much precision is good for me and actually compliments my abilities, not my weaknesses associated with OCD. It fits my personality and work ethic. I’m already having fun doing this.
I will keep everyone updated on it’s progress 🙂
Also, if you have any pointers for sewing a pattern, please share them! I could use all the help I can get.
Thanks for your help and thanks for reading!
PS I’m super tired, so if I haven’t gotten to your comment yet, it’s because I’m going to sleep now! I want to give thoughtful replies and just can’t do that now 🙂
