I was trying to decide on what to wear for my husband's cousin's wedding so of course I was on Craftster's when I stumbled upon this awesome dress: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=154676.0

So of course I had to make one right away! I got the pattern on ebay for .99 and .99 in shipping and had it 3 days later. I went to JoAnns and got this gorgeous silky fabric and started sewing. It took FOREVER to cut out the peices because I decided to line the whole thing due to the fabric being a bit see thru.

This was my first time using piping and that's something I think I'll have to work on. Also this was my first ever zipper. Turns out the thought of putting a zipper in is alot scarier than actually doing it.

I'm very happy with how the dress turned out but not so happy with how I looked in it. My husband said I looked awesome and so did everyone else but I'm not too sure. (No I'm not fishing for compliments! lol)

To match my dress I made something similar for my 4 year old. I took her favorite dress that's similar in style and copied a pattern onto newspaper. Then I did the same basic thing as with my dress, Line, pipe, zipper etc.....

Please give me some feedback since this is the first thing I've made with a pattern..... I'm itching to do more but I wanted som expert opinions.

Thanks ya'll!


Me and my daughter near the end of the wedding. We were both pooped and ready for bed.


Ignore the goofy looking guy. lol! This is the best picture I have of the piping part.

So cute! And it looks really well made - doesn't look like your first zipper or piping at all! And the colour really suits you (and your daughter!)

Thank you all for your positive comments! I was wanting to post this for a while but wasn't sure that my stuff was "up to par" with the rest of you.

I love the color. My daughter helped to pick it out. I totally thought it would take us FOREVER and a day to decide what fabric we both wanted but it took less than 5 minutes which is a real miracle!  Grin

We totally were. The best part is though that I didn't have to search through the crowds for her. I could always spot her in the bright dress! lol!
