First Dress Ever

Added Sep 10, 2008

by scoobiewu

Seattle, Washing...






Here is my first sewing project: the Azalea dress! I used a mauve lyocell knit for the main color and a sheer grey polyester for the top layer. I made some loopy things for the shoulder to cover some mistakes. I also changed the back yoke to give more coverage and feel more casual.

Material Notes

Lyocell, polyester

    I haven’t attempted a first dress yet, but I am sure no first dress of mine would look this good!

    It’s absolutely beautiful, from the close up picture it looks like you did a great job! Maybe you could post a full shot of the front though. I really love this pattern and after seeing your creation I want one too.
