We had our very first virtual Cape Town Frocktails event.

Originally, well, pre-pandemic, I would have gotten to meet fellow local sewists in person. But sadly, the event had to be cancelled due to COVID-19, so the organizers hosted a virtual event instead.

Everything that has happened in my life in the past 38 years has led me here to this very moment.

Yes, it was not all roses and fluffy clouds, not at all, but I’m grateful for it because through it all I always choose to see the bigger picture.

The warmer season is approaching here in the southern hemisphere, and I’m excited to start wearing dresses again.

If you follow me on social media you’ll know that I’m currently working on my capsule wardrobe, and ironically enough aren’t many dresses in the first collection I’ve put together. Granted, it’s only 6 pieces. I’ll be sharing more about that in a future blog post, but for now, my point is that I love dresses, and creating this capsule wardrobe is challenging me to be more open to exploring other facets of this amazing sewing craft.
