Great dresses!  I especially love the last one.  Did you use a pattern?  You have amazing skill!

Holy jamole, fourteen-year-olds didn't look like that back when I was a teen! We were all sticks and rulers, I swear!
The green one has got to be my favorite. It just looks so comfortable and easy to wear!

You've done a fine job on these, and you should be very proud.

You have incredible talent!  Don't let the classes ruin you!!  I think that when we just do, and don't take formal instruction, we just forge ahead - and not knowing any better can be best.  Not to diss on classes, cause you may learn plenty, but you can still do things your way.   That's how I learned to sew too, just by myself.  I didn't know I was "supposed to be" scared of invisible zippers, buttonholes or whatever, and it was wonderful.

If you are interested in making me some knitted dishcloths, contact me for a swap!  I'll sew you something or gift you with supplies!

When life hands you green velvet, make a green velvet dress.

i agree!! i've only taken one sewing class, but it was with the most awesome teacher. we did invisible zippers and afterwards she said "well, we're always told to be petrified of how difficult they are. nuts to that"

congrats on some awesome dresses - i'm almost twice your age (holy smokes i feel old) and still can't sew anything that good. can't wait to see how you progress with such a great start!  Smiley

These are really cute and they look great on you too!
The only thing I noticed that seemed a little odd was the length on the green one, but maybe that's just the way you're holding it.  You should try something funky now that you've got the basics down!  I bet you could come up with some really cute stuff Smiley
