Hello all! It has been quite a while since I posted, but I have been busy with sewing.  Halloween is over, and I had costumes out the wazoo!  Anywho, I wanted to post my dress that I finished today to commemorate my 110 lb weight loss over the past year.  I am so in love with this dress, and the best part, it is still a bit big! I have to take it in a bit more.  So here it is Smiley  (forgive the messy living room)

I am SO in love with how my ruffled collar turned out.

The dress is made from plum colored taffeta, from 800fabricsclub.com Smiley Hope you like!
