This is one of the first dresses I ever tried to make with a commercial pattern. It was supposed to be an easy/beginner’s pattern, but it gave me so much trouble and headache (especially the collar) that I put it aside for almost a year. I finally decided a few days ago that I wanted this dress out of my life, so I forced myself to finish it by any means necessary.
