Hobby lobby had a good sale last week and I couldnt resist getting 10 patterns and a bolt of clearance fabric.
Wondering around I knew this fabric would be perfect for Simplicity 1061, which I picked up that day. I've never done anything this complicated before. Darts, lining, a zipper! I must have been out of my mind. I had the accent fabric in my stash already.
Getting into the sewing it really wasnt that had. I had the bodice done pretty quickly which had the most steps.
Then came time for.......the zipper. I hemed and hawed about doing the zipper for a few hours. It made me nervous as hell! I managed to get it in though. It didnt turn out like the picture and was a little bubbly but it was in damn it!
I got the black band to line up almost perfectly too!
The skirt didnt take long and all and I was done!
Im so pleased with the dress and I cant wait till I can wear it. I know Im going to make more of this pattern when I find more perfect fabric.
