I did it!

One of my main goals this month was to make a dress myself from a pattern. I found the perfect pattern - a reprint of a vintage pattern from 1947 and the perfect fabric - a beautiful celery green polka dot cotton blend.
Once I opened the pattern envelop though I quickly realized this would be more complicated than I thought. I briefly considered mailing the fabric and pattern to Heather who makes the gorgeous batik wetbags for Domino Pads and also offers vintage style handmade dresses but with the encouragement of some friends I tackled this project anyway.
I am so glad I did! I think it turned out great and I am already planning another one for Spring.
