My very first item of clothing! I have only been sewing for a couple of months and loved making this dress. I finished it sunday afternoon ready for a party that night. The instructions on you tube were great and really helpfull. I found the bias binding a little tricky and had to put in two extra darts in the back due to a small back. I shall definatly be making another one perhaps in denim next time for the autumn.
