This is the first time that I have sewn something to wear! I made this dress for my brother-in-law’s wedding. In true-to-me fashion I finished it the morning of the wedding. The dress is made from McCall’s 5382. It looks like a prom dress from the pattern, but I used a light weight cotton voile that I think made it look less prom-ish.
Since this was my first real sewing experiment, there are a few things that I learned (invisible zippers and boning) and a few things I would change (make one size smaller – I pinned it to my bra so I wouldn’t lose the dress while dancing!. I would also have chosen a different fabric for the lining, it was a stiff broad cloth that gave the dress a little too much structure in the skirt).
Overall I am happy and hope to have many more projects to come!
