But it unleashed my hidden potential, too. It made me want to try my hand at sewing – a feat I never thought I had the patience to do. I was encouraged by the fact that I could take something and make it my own, so I challenged myself to make 3 new dresses this year.
When I was in high school, I would sketch different outfits all the time. I would take my J. Crew catalog and learn about wool crepe, a-line skirts and waffle
henleys. My designing dreams abruptly came to an end after making a blue
velvet dress in home economics class that had a close resemblance to the Gordon
Gartrell shirt that Denise Huxtable sewed for Theo on “The Cosby Show.” Now 18
years later, I’m trying again. Like my favorite George Eliot quote goes,
“It’s never too late to be what you might have been.”
