Description

My first dress!!! I created the pattern at a sewing course, following the instructions of my teacher, and then sew it in a green cotton fabric, weight similar to light denim. I had to struggle with the pences… but finally I’m the winner! :D The real colour is the one of the pictures taken outside, the other pictures are inside home and the colour seems darker.

It’s not perfect, the zip should be better sewn and also other details should be better. But this is only the first!

I already realized a similar one for my mother but I forgot to take some pictures of it: I will post it in the next weeks.

    Nice work, and I agree zippers are a pain!

      Thank you!
      I already worked with short zippers for skirts, but this one was very long, it was so difficult to keep it straight! :p

    looks great for your first! it’s great to have a nice fitting basic pattern – you can modify that endlessly. zippers are always a pain… :)

      Thanks! :)
      I’m planning to sew another one for me with a different neckline, modifying this pattern!
      …..when I will have time enough…..
