I found patterns in my grand-ma house, like this pattern of a dress for pregnant woman. I love the shape, so I thought it could be fun to give it a try for my first dress sewing and my third sewing project xD
So I made a U-collar, and shorten the dress. (forget my messy room  xD (she's still messy, even if I tidy it yesterday ;_;,))


Action shot! xD I have so much fun dancing with this dress and a butterfly wand! It was so great!

Woo, that's all : 3
But there are looot of mistakes! You can see some on these photos (thanks to my little sister who took them <3)... I had so much trouble sewing sleeves! My second is better than the first, I think I found a way to do it nicely XD

Nice dress. Keep the good work.
Is there anything sweeter than findings from our grandmas ? Smiley

I can't tell that there were any mistakes at all! Good work. Are you pregnant, then, or did you simply want a cute dress? Either way, it's lovely!

All it takes is a new bag to make a girl smile, and one smile can change the world.

Thats quite cool! I can't see the mistakes in the pics either.
If I may make a suggestion? Thats would look even cooler if you made it a bubble hem and wore it with tights.
Just my opinion. It's nice anyway. Good job.

Thats would look even cooler if you made it a bubble hem and wore it with tights.

That's a great idea!!!! It would look awesome with the tights and the bubble hem.

They didn't agree on much. In fact they rarely agreed on anything. They fought all the time and they challenged each other everyday. But in spite of their differences they had one important thing in common. They were crazy about each other.

If I saw this dress on someone else I probably would consider it frumpy, but because you look so gorgeous and whimsical, I think you pull it off with flying colors!! I love the neckline and the fabric Smiley

wow that's a really cute dress, i would wear it and i'm not pregnant lol.
If it was just a little above the knee, worn with tights it'd be even cuter
than  it already is! Just imagine it in some polka dot material with some
heart shaped buttons !!! OMG. i want it. hehe.

please look at my painting gallery!

Germie-> Yeah, that will be my third kid, it's a girl, I and my husband Osmund shall call her Emma, because of his grandma's first name and... NO! xD Just joking, i'm not pregnant at all! (but Osmund, I yyou come by here... I do want to marry you xDDDD(kidding again))
I made this dress just because I want to do something cute with the pattern... : 3

Thanks everyone!
In fact I don't really like the fabric, I took it because it was the cutest and the more baby-ish of all my fabrics, but I think I shall redo-it in black and white fabric, with stripes or polka dots!
O yeah with tights it could be so cute! *_* or high socks *_* and hearth-shaped button yeah! xD I also found some sooo cuuute duckling button! I want them!

The bubble hem is a so great idea too! I will try it! xD

Maliaka->Thanks for making me discover two words today: 'frumpy' and 'whimsical' I love the word frumpy so much that's so funny to spell iiiit! <3333 mwahaha xD
