My 1st dress

This is my version of B5038, I am very top heavy, but I think I did a very good job seeing as this is the 1st dress I’ve made, or put on that fits! LOL

There are a few imperfections that I will be sure to fix when I make another, but overall it turned out as I expected. (excuse that bra strap, I will NOT be wearing this bra with this dress, and excuse the broom & dustpan :p)

I do think that I will do 100x better when I get a dress form. When I say I had a TIME trying to fit myself, while avoiding stick pins. Bay-BEY!

I haven’t worn it out yet because it’s been raining like crazy!


  1. I think you did a great job!

  2. The dress looks great! Perfect for the summer! Great job on your 1st dress!

    I also like the embrodiery (sp) on the fabric. We are going to have to do a quick 101 on how to take close up pics with your digi cam! ;o)

  3. Great job. Is that really ur first dress? Cause it is nice. Looks like u and ur husband bout to stop going to the mall for clothes. Must be nice. Keep it up!

    Anyway, good job!

  8. Man my dress didnt come out NOTHING like it was supposed to. I took my sewing machine back. I still have needles and pens and tracing paper, and bobbins and chalk pencils and stuff that Im never gonna use.

    I was so embarrassed of my dress I didnt even post pics.

    Your came out really good to be the first one. Mine looked like an explosive science project from a 2nd grader. 🙁

    Oh well.

    Happy Sunday!
