design and create: dress

I have designed and created my first dress. It is all one piece and I did not use a pattern. I am not good at patterns, I always think that it would be better if this...or if that...I guess I really like doing my own thing. So this shows my own thing full force. I made this dress! yay! I love wearing it because it was made exactly for ME. I pinned it on and figured out the measurements that way, it worked well and I am completely enjoying my finished product.

It's a bit funky, but that's the way I like it.

bethany, that's awesome! the funny thing is that i'm in the middle of posting about my very first sewing adventure of my own! who knew we thought along the same lines? but then we diverge...
i made a skirt, METICULOUSLY, by the pattern. isn't that funny? we both do the same thing at the same time, but completely different ways. i love it!

Oh that's too cute! It's perfect for your figure. I love it with the orange shirt underneath, too.
