I don't often experiment. I was wondering recently why that is and have come up with the reason I think that is. I live really far from a source of fabric. Like 120 miles far. Two hours away from having supplies at my fingertips. I do a lot of mail order fabric (fabric.com is my go to source) but still, I don't buy in huge quantities, more project specific.
This summer, I bought some grey jersey knit to make a friend a maxi skirt. I bought extra fabric to make myself one and ended up going in a different direction. I drafted a patterns based on this tutorial from Crafterhours. I knew I wanted it based on this dress from Garnet Hill. This was a big experiment for me and I am really proud of how my first self-drafted garment turned out.
