Summer Dress

Well, I'm finally ready to share the dress that I made while my mom was here last weekend. I really love the fabric. It has lots of summery colors.

The dress has shoulder pleats, and darts! I really learned a lot from making it. Of course my mom walked me through the whole thing. I was hoping to make it through without having her do any actual sewing on it, but that didn't happen. I had some trouble with attaching the skirt to the top, so she had to help a little with that. But really, I did most everything, and I'm pretty proud.

I'm no model, but I thought I should share a picture or two of me actually wearing it.What do you think? Not too bad for my first dress?
Now that my mom is gone, she wants me to try it again...by myself. I honestly don't know if I can do it. But I won't know until I try. I'll at least get the pieces cut out tomorrow.

Too cute!!! Good job. And good job for striking out on your own now. You'll probably start feeling really confident about your third or fourth dress. ;)

That is gorgeous! I'm sure you'll do great if you decide to make another one too. I absolutely love the fabric you used too!

Well done! This is just perfect for summer and I suspect with a cardi it'll last you right through to Autumn too!
