This was my second dress (the first one was a disaster…but a great learning experience). I spent much more time on it, making a muslin and pattern alterations before sewing and LOTS of time on the blind hems. I used a simple McCall’s pattern M2401 for it. Pretty excited on the results for my second dress! (sorry about the bad photos, I’ll take better ones next time, I promise!)
