Title: My beautiful new Easter dress... Simplicity 4119 [Edited to add action shots]
Post by: mirthgoddess on March 17, 2008 07:07:28 PM
I just got through installing my zipper and hook and eye in my pretty new floral dress. I'm pretty excited about how it turned out! I still need to hem it, but it will be ready in time for its debut on Sunday.

Also, check out my rockin' new(to me) vintage dress form, making her Craftster debut in this post...

Sooo pretty!  I love all the details and the fun fabric. 
I wish I had it together to have made an easter dress!  I admit that looking at the new clothes is probably my favorite part of the service.   :P

Wow! That fabric is beautiful! Where did you find it?

Thanks everyone.

sixblueirises: I got the fabric on clearance at Fabricland, a local Fabric store here in NJ. It was, I think, $3.50/yard and I bought most of what they had left.

I love the fabric and the pattern you chose. I have always wished for a dress form. Lucky you.

I will take some action shots after I hem the dress, and when my boyfriend is around to man the camera.

Oh, sewing with clearance fabric is the best!  It really does make you feel like you're saving even more money by sewing yourself.   I think the material is just right for this dress.  The print might be a bit large for some styles, but it is perfect for this.  You did a really nice job on this.
