When my little sister reminded me she’d be graduating in June this year, I didn’t really care that I had only been sewing for a couple of months: I decided I was going to make my own dress for the event. Knowing it would be cold here in the southern hemisphere, I wanted something with sleeves (which I didn’t have at all). I was inspired by Very Easy Vogue V8615 but I self-drafted the pattern for this little guy by myself (well, with the help of my sewing instructor). Ok ok… it’s not EXACTLY how I had pictured it, but I really really like it and I wear it all the time. Maybe more out of pride than anything else. I could hardly believe I had actually made a dress. And a cute one. So here it is, everyone, will all my pride and joy: my very first dress!!
