So I haven't worked with a pattern in - i don't know.. 10 years? (Home ec.. I made a skirt, it was hideous). I've always kinda freestyled things.. tried them on, taken them in, here, there, whatever.. So this was my first time using a pattern, which I got at burdastyle.com for $4. It's the Azalea.. except i made it with jerseycotton so it was heavy as a 2 layer, so I cut out the bottom layer. I didn't finish the seams/hems/straps because I decided I didn't like it enough to bother.. but anyways..

That is way cute.  I need to work myself up to making a dress.  I'm still on pillow cases and aprons...

I think your first dress is beautiful. I wish I could do something like that. I am not that patient. XD

The black accents are really dark against the light dress, but other than that, this dress is really cool. Try pairing it with a pair of dark jeans and some long necklaces -- I think you might find that you rather like it.

My best friend saw it and decided she wanted it, so I'm going to finish it for her.

I wouldn't say I'm patient.. in fact, I'm really very impatient - to the point where I didn't do the hemmings or finish it properly  because I just.. lost patience. Same with lots of things about it - I could have done better.. things just look a lot prettier in my mind.

I actually love the black/light contrast.. I'm obsessed with the monochrome look so that's exactly what I was going for. Glad others liked it.. I think next time this will go a lot faster.. I def wont be doing it in Jersey again!

The dress design is really one of my favourites.

You've done a great job! The cloth you have chosen looks great together!
