I made this dress the other day. I' moderately pleased with it, I'm new to the whole sewingbusiness and still learning.

What do you think?







(pardon my silly face)

That is so cute and flattering!  You look lovely in the cream/beige tones of this dress.  Is the brown cluster of flowers a pin or sewn on?  Great job!

Thank you Cheesy 
- I really do love those colours and think they're kind of "springy".

The brown cluster is actually an elastic band with spangels and gauze (I dont know if that is the usual words for it I had to look it up in my dictionary, hehe Roll Eyes) and I was going to use it as a belt but it didnt look good at all, so I sewed it together like a rose and attached it to the dress.

For now I have sewn it on with a few light stitches, but I am considering getting a safety-pin backing on it:)
