My First-Ever Dress

Added Mar 24, 2008

by ad0rexalex

Dix Hills, New Y...






This is the first thing I’ve ever made, period. It was a fun day I spent figuring out how to put it together, but in the end, it came out alright. I messed up the pleats a bit, but for my first-made item, its not bad. I didn’t use a pattern for this, I just played it by eye.

Material Notes

Black eyelet, black poplin, elastic

    What a great job! For your first ever garment it looks amazing! I love the accessories you put with it. Your room looks like mine did when I was your age, covered with fashion pages from magazines! Keep sewing, you’ve got a good thing going!
