2009-02-17

finished this dress today. i'm trying to make good on my new year's resolution to make more clothes for myself. anyways, i really like the dress and the pattern. i do have some issues with the bodice. it kinda puckers out in a couple of places. but, other than that, me likey. (please forgive the pictures. 4 year old taking them with assitance from 3 year old)




(forgot to hook the hook and eye)



next up, add borders to the ycmt quilt. after that another outfit for me. then an outfit for indyanna from a pattern i've been dying to try out.

Good job Holly. I've gotten to where I hate sewing for myself--it's too hard to get a good fit when fitting yourself! And the pics are great--especially for 3 & 4 year old photographers!~Shelly~

Love the dress and fabric choice very Holly. I have looked at that pattern several times because I love the dress and I always think it's too short for my age, I see on you it's a little longer (shorty) and looks great, duh I could add length relativley easily. Need to get you down here for a sewing day, I need you to thread my serger and help me make this dress for me :-) throw the kids in the back tell Ryan to bring a fishing pole, and put your sewing gear in the trunk and get to driving :-)
