After the challenge

Hello, everyone! It's been a while and actually, this post was supposed to be up on Monday, but... well, life got in the way. I spent most of my time either studying, with my boyfriend or with my doggie.
Next week I have the last two exams of this session, so cross your fingers for me but don't expect much content from this poor neglected blog, especially sewing related posts.
Anyway, I can't wait to get back to sewing. It's one of my most frequent thoughts, after all, and I'm sure I'm in good company. :)

My next projects will be a pair of shorts and another dress, but this time I want to take it slow and make a muslin for both. The time limit of the June challenge forced me to cut some corners and, being a perfectionst, I wasn't always happy of the outcome.
I sure was very happy with dress number one and four, and I want to thank you all for your sweet comments. Dresses one, two and four were also featured on Burdastyle front page, and I was very very flattered since I'm a big fan of the community.

For the moment I wish you all a great weekend. I'll spend it to the seaside and I won't have Internet access, so if you have any question or comment, I'll only be able to respond on Monday.

p.s. If you want to see how the other participants of the challenge did, you can take a look at the Flickr group!
