I made a dress!

I impressed myself and actually managed to create a garment! As I was afraid of though, everything worked out and it even fits me, which is great… the unfortunate part is that I really haven’t warmed up any to that fabric I used. Morgan noted that it is flesh colored, and says that from a distance, it could look like I’m not wearing anything… so not the look I was going for!

As you’ll see though, I think I did manage to create this dress along the lines of the shirt I showed in the last post. The pleats/ruffles that I made are certainly not as even, but somehow still work. I decided not to hem each ruffle layer and instead just stitched along the bottom and let it fray, a la the Amy Butler Barcelona skirt.
