mama's got a new dress on!


I think I'm starting to really like making my own clothes.  I love the way this dress turned out.  It's the same pattern as the first dress I made for myself, but the bodice is different.  This style of bodice suits me and my tiny top much better, and I figured out how to add darts under the arm to make it fit perfectly.  This dress just came together so easily, even the tension on my sewing machine cooperated, and I think that makes me feel even better about the whole project.  It was simply...a pleasure.

  2. I love the dress! I also like to make my own clothes, but...I have patterns and material and sometimes I even actually start to construct the item of clothing, but I don't seem to ever finish.

    I also have a closet full of things that would be so cute if only I would shorten the hem or take in the sides, etc, etc, etc...drives my husband CRAZY:)
