    It needs a good pressing, but other than that, you’ve made a super-awesome first dress! The colour is fantastic on you :D

    Definitely wear it out! And it is completely normal to get very excited about making your own things and about other people commenting on them – I still do! This one looks fab and very impressive for a first dress! x

      i wore it tonight! it survived alcohol so it’s a keeper. moreover people gave me compliments and they couldn’t believe that i took up sewing when i told them that i made the dress myself! most of my friends are calling me granny but i’m proud of my new hobby!
