Ok so I just made an account here so I could comment on this AMAZING dress! I was speechless as soon as I saw the pictures!

My mom taught me to sew on a Morse model 7200 sewing machine when I was little.  Now that I'm all grown up and starting a family of my own, I have been asking for that machine since my mom purchased a new sewing machine years ago.  Well, two weekends ago when we were visiting my parents, my mother finally handed over the Morse.  I brought it home and my husband got it oiled and regreased for me.  I finally figured out how to correctly thread it Wednesday (July 15) and it runs like a champ.  I also purchased a skirt pattern and some material last weekend.  I've got the two sides of the skirt half-way sewn up (I couldn't decide if I wanted to add pockets or not) and the zipper pinned and then I found this tut!  I was so excited about it I brought my material to work with me today so I could cut out the pieces and start pinning the darts.  I've never tried to tackle something this big before, but your tutorial is SO easy to follow!  You've really helped me push myself to learn new skills and become a better seamstress.  I hope I can make clothes for not only myself but my kids like my mom used to make for me (with prettier fabric...come on, the neon colors and geometric patterns on the fabrics from the 1990's are not my style!), and completing this project is definitely a step in that direction. 

As for the dress, my plan is to also add pockets.  I will be wearing this to my family reunion next weekend in Pennsylvania, and I will take pictures and post them here.  Thank you, really, for taking the time to post the tutorial.  You look absolutely stunning in that dress, and the fabric is gorgeous.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Best wishes,
Christina

I am 6'1" and this is the perfect dress cut I search hours for in the store! It is really hard to find the right dress shape for me because I have a long torso and long legs and I like for hems to be at or slightly below my knee.
I just e-mailed this to my sister to see if she can do it plus I posted an ad on my local craigslist to see if there was a local seamstress that wanted to make some money making me a few dresses.

I don't know how to sew and I don't own a sewing machine so I have to recruit Smiley

I am hoping to have like 6 of these made out of all different patterns.

I love you for posting this tute  Kiss

Im in love with the shape of this dress....being a tall girl myself I can understand the need to have something "tailor-made" to fit you just right!

Hooray for us tall girls!

I'm back after a long hiatus. Not doing any big swaps right now but feel free to message me for small ones and supply exchanges. I have a bunch of fabric that I'd like to swap for different supplies!
