Sweet Satisfaction!

Five years after I ventured into designing a competition ballroom gown  I finally got to see it in action.

Palm Desert Dancesport Championships July 2011


Watching the video made me remember the long hours spent researching, designing prototypes, the frustrating failures before I finally created a competition worthy dress.


It was all worth it to achieve that goal, creating something I never thought I could. I hope this is a lesson to all sewers out there who think they cannot sew something difficult. Take it from someone who knew nothing about ballroom gowns. You will make mistakes. The stitch ripper will become your best friend. Don't give up. With perseverence, you WILL become a better sewer.
