My first dress I made entirely on my own! (My first dress was a bridesmaid’s dress that I had a lot of help to make, so it doesn’t count :P)
I made this dress a size larger to compensate for my bust size. I didn’t like how low the waistline sat, so I raised it a little and will have to take it in a bit.
I didn’t use the recommended fabrics for this, but it still turned out ok. I will probably make another in a lighter fabric. The pattern was easy to follow. :)
Unsure. It was stock material I had. It’s a bit heavier weight and after wearing it I find it doesn’t breath well. But it hangs nicely. :)
