Dress Attempt #1
My First Dress: Part 1
My first attempt at an easy dress pattern by New Look (Pattern #6909)... and a sad attempt at photoshopping my messy room out from behind the dress form.
While we patiently await the wrath of hurricaine Irene, I have been working on my first dress project. The pattern is easy, but incorporated a princess seam which was very difficult to keep lined up while putting in the initial front seams. Although it was not listed, I needed to put in lining because the fabric is pretty thin. I still need to sew in the sleeves, hem the skirt and sew in the zipper...we'll see how it goes.
