Making a tidy dress

February 4, 2020

After at least a year of dreaming about it, I finally produced the #rstats / #Tidyverse dress of my dreams. This involved designing fabric, getting it custom printed, making a pattern from an existing garment, and sewing the dress. I learned a lot of useful lessons during this project, including "do unit tests" (make a practice dress) and "document your work" (get your BFF to take pictures of you).
