Look! It’s a Dress!


It doesn’t suck!

Does it look “home-sewn”? Probably. (That seems to be one of the worst possible insults Michael Kors can throw at somebody on Project Runway, so evidently it is to be avoided.) Does it have a few issues? Most definitely. (Bias facing? What? How?) Does my daughter like it? Yes, she does. Am I proud of myself for overcoming my irrational fear of garment sewing? Totally.

Okay, mission accomplished! You might even see a summer version of this one of these days.

    Congrats on getting over your fear of garment sewing! The dress looks great and I especially love the photo of your girl twirling in it 🙂

    Awesome, I'm so excited for you!! And of course she loves it, it looks like a great twirling dress. Good for you – and it doesn't look homemade to me, it looks fantastic! 🙂

    I love it!

    I know what you mean about home sewn. Most of my friends and family know what I create, but I strive to make things that strangers would think are store bought. 😉

    OMG Lee! I did the same thing when my daughter was the same age! lol Mine was a "dumbed down" dress – a band with straps, no curved neck. Good for you!!! You did great! Glad to know there are other quilters afraid of garment sewing. ; ) Love your pretty photos!!

    Very cute! You did a fantastic job!Clothing scares me. I made a skirt recently for my daughter and it was such a disaster that she hid it under her bed.
    That is such a darling picture of your cutie twirling too.
