Awhile ago I decided I wanted to make a dress. I knew exactly how I wanted it to look. It turned out pretty much like that but it's not as flattering as I thought it would be, I can think of a few decent alterations I'm going to make to it anyway.
Some of the names I came up with whilst making this dress were...,
The "Circle Skirts are Evil" dress.
Dress of a million pins.
Pins, Patience and Persistance.
Million Mile Hem dress.
I really can't remember the rest. I was pretty delusional and tired by the end.
There's a few things I would change next time round. I'd make the skirt band/waist band higher, Shorten the sleeves and make the whole top part a little tighter. All in all not bad for my first time making a dress, and first time making a circle skirt, first time making nice seams and first time sewing with stretch stuff for real.
Also, I did the measurements for the circle skirt and did the maths about three or four times, even using an online calculator and it still came out too big, so I ended up having to make small gathers around the waist of the skirt.
Anyway, I love it and plan on making a few more out of other types of fabric.
Here's proof.! haha
The dress..! Look at that circle skirt..! Awww How cute.!
The back, I wasn't keen on how the back sat. But now I think it's pretty.
Front.! Sorry for slight boobage.
You can actually wear this with the sleeves off of your shoulders....
This is what it looks like from the side with the sleeves down.
And, Last but not least. Front with the sleeves off of shoulders.
Sorry for the bad pictures.... I was tired after work so my head has been cut out. Also they had to be taken with my stupid camera phone
