Strapless Burlap

That girl would look good in anything, even a burlap sack... ok that may not be the case for me, but it was still fun participating in an upcycling event hosted by Joe Bean Coffee Roasters, Thread, and Greentopia!
The rules were simple, pick up a burlap coffee sack from Joe Bean and make it into something fabulous. I chose a strapless dress, because I'm oh so classy. My favorite part is the herringbone exposed zipper in the back, too cute right?
Note to self: when sewing burlap remember to add ample seam allowance, it will unravel and burlap does NOT stretch... (not pictured, me from behind with the zipper not being able to zip the last 3 inches up... awesome)
Want to see my creation along with others on display?? Come to Joe Bean tomorrow for First Fridays and vote for me to win!! Ok you don't have to vote for me, but come on down and see all the awesome creations and drink some of the most delicious coffee around!

See you there??

I loved this dress! It looked so cute and simple compared to some of the weirder designs at Joe Bean, something that someone might actually (if itch-ily) be able to wear.
