New Dress

Wanted to post pics of this new dress I made. The pattern is my own concoction, and the whole dress was created completely by me.  I love it!

Of course, since it is my second dress (first is here) there were a few minor problems. The only real problem is the back is slightly crooked! I didn't know how to fix it besides ripping out all the stitches and starting over. But, as its barley noticeable...
I can still wear it and love it. Also, I tried to iron the dress and burned a small hole in the back, that I covered up with a piece of lace. It just burned through one layer. I was so mad at myself I cried! But I learned you can't iron all materials. I know now that stretchy materials need to be ironed on a low heat.  Needless to say, I hope I never make that mistake again. It was scary. I spent three days working on this and thought I had ruined it!

I don't have a picture of me wearing it because I'm still sick! But maybe I'll post one later. Oh, and I haven't hemmed it yet. I ran out of blue thread and need to make a run to my local craft store to pick some up when I feel better. The stretchy stitch on my sewing machine takes up ALOT of thread for some reason. Used the whole spool.

  1. The dress is very beautiful, love how you "incorpotrated" lace details in it. Waiting to see it on you!
