I started getting into sewing again this summer, but haven't created anything from scratch before. I decided to try to create some patterns and see how they would work out. I used some leftover fabric for the blue one, and some new patterned fabric for the second. I'm thinking that the patterned dress may look better with a different color ribbon, and I may take down the front of it some more since it's pretty high up on my chest. Any pointers for a first time dressmaker?
