I made a dress today! I'm sick, so my weekend consists of sewing and staying in the house. There was 4 episodes of Project Runway on, so why not make the dress I've been wanting to make! I got the idea from Smarmy [https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=219641.0]but I changed it from a circle skirt to more of a pleated circle skirt. I also changed up the length of the bodice and switched around the bust part as well. It was my first time working with a Jersey Knit before, so mind the bumps, I'll be fixing them tomorrow, when I make another dress with the same materials. Oh, and also mind the unfinished hem. I was to excited to hem it. Oh, and it was made without a pattern.

It's fabric straight from the fabric store. It's my first without a pattern I should say. In 5th grade I made a pencil skirt and blazer with a pattern from the fabric store, but this is the first without :] Thanks

To other poster, fixed the links :]

I WISH I were sewing like that when I was thirteen!

Two years ago....

Anyway. That is an adorable dress. The color looks great on you and I love the bodice detailing. It's perfect. I'd buy it...if I didn't sew myself. Smiley
