I sewed a dress!! From a pattern!! All by myself!!
Some may think this is no big deal. But for me it was a first. I'm not good at following instructions, nor do I like it. It was a learning curve for me to do exactly as I was told. Slight problem though. The instructions sucked!! I sewed this dress purely by the diagrams included with the instructions. Thank heavens for them!
Lucky for me I have the most gorgeous model to show off my dress.
The pattern wanted me to do button holes. I was too scared to do it, cause I've never done them before and I didn't want to wreck the whole dress, so I ended up putting in a couple of loops, which I think I like better anyway.
I'll definitely be using this lovely vintage pattern again!
Here's one more photo. My nephew was jealous that I was taking all the piccies of my niece, and he insisted that Woody can smile better then his sister.
I complied, because it was his birthday :)
