It took a couple weeks to finish, but I Was only sewing for an hour or so here and there. The ribbons and lace didn't take horribly long as far as hand-sewing goes, but the ruffle took forever because I had to stitch each gather separately and all that. But I'm pretty happy how it turned out Smiley

Wow! That is an intense amount of hand sewing!  Definitely worth it though, it looks great on you!  Well done!

Thanks! It took a while, but it was way fun. Although since it was my very first sewing project ever, I keep seeing things wrong with it now that I want to change! Haha.

I can't believe you did that by hand. I would've jabbed my eyes out with the needle! It's very cute! Great job Cheesy

I've sewn, maybe 7 or 8 things that you can actually wear, and they've all got tons of mistakes. So for your first one that's awesome! My first shirt is... questionable. But I still wear it because I love it! Smiley

That's amazing and so cute, especially considering you did all by hand! You certainly can't tell..
I've been meaning to make a sailor dress for a while, perhaps this can be my inspiration Smiley

Yeah! It was actually really easy, as far as complications go. I just bought ivory and navy ribbon from Joann's and literally just sewed it to the bottom hem in stripes. And I sewed the ivory ribbon to the waistline and neck line and added the bow. (I was going to do the ribbon around the entire waistline, not just the front, but I realized since the ribbons doesn't stretch, it was hard enough to put on over my boobs anyway :-P The sleeves I really want to change because they look uneven and sloppy, but I just wrapped a ribbon around them and sewed it. And the back, which used to be a high neck, I just cut a section out of it, and replaced it with stripes of ribbon. The lace was pre-gathered (I think I got a spool of it out of a bargain bin at Walmart). I did gather it more for the bit on the bodice though. And...that's about it. If I were to redo anything, it would be the sleeves, they're a little stretched from where I gathered them. But thanks for your comments guys! I wore my dress today and got a bunch of compliments  Smiley
