Starting to sew again was one of the best thing I did. So, here it is, my first x-mass dress, ever. I never wanted to pay for a dress which I could have only once. And, honestly, business x-mass party is not so special occasion to really go and spend some big-time-money.
I had this fabric for literally 24 years. It was a gift, but I never knew what to do with it. When I saw Princess Dress 11/2012 #121 I decided to give it a try. (ok, its not the same seeing the dress on the model, most probably warning size 36, and then sewing it it in 42 :) ).
The result was great. I did longer sleews, no lining, unfortunately I did not have enough for pockets, but still. I am very happy. Many colleagues actualy didnt believed I did it alone what I really take as a compliment.
I already purchased some fabric for another dress based on this pattern.
And a questions: does anyone know why zipper, which perfectly work, finaly when is sewn on a dress with invisible zipper foot, do not wont to be opened/closed smoothly?
