My First Dress - Maryy

Brooklyn, New Yo...






This is the first dress I’ve actually sewn all by my self! It was really easy once I got started. I actually cut out the pattern a year ago, and left it under my bed for a whole year because I was scared it would be too hard!

Now that I’ve made it, I plan on making a lot more in different colors. It is the perfect light summer dress! Love it!!

SORRY not sure why the images are uploaded sideways!!!

Material Notes

Just a cheap polyester plaid. I added some buttons for a little bit more of a nautical feel.




Garment Type
Beach, Casual

      the part that took me the longest was cutting out all the patter pieces & learning how to put in the zipper (first time!). the rest took me a few nights of a few hours each. i think i’m going to make a second one, so i’ll let you know how long that takes me!
