I mentioned this when I posted the matching cherry purse on another thread, but I'll mention it again for the kids at home that don't always lurk about in the purses/bags/wallets section of the site...

I'm in my second year of taking fashion production classes at my school - I pretty much get graded to sew cute stuff.

This dress is my most recent project for the class, and was made to match the purse I linked to earlier.



This is it on the dress form in the messy, messy sewing room that my mom and I share.



And this is me wearing the dress and giving a thumbs-up approval in my bathroom. I'm such a dork. XD

The pattern I used was New Look 6699, with bodice G, midriff J, and skirt M. The instructions were pretty easy, especially since this was my first dress.

It's beautiful - I love that color! I think I'm going to have to add that pattern to my "to sew" list.

It's so well done, it really makes me wish I could sew much better.

Impressive
