My first Project - Black Dress

Added Nov 3, 2011

by raquelcjardim

Albany, Californ...






This is my first project!! I am so happy with the result!
I didn’t take any classes, just learned with the instructions of this pattern, websites and the manual of my machine

  • Of all websites that I looked, Burda Style is the best one **

The dress is more adjusted to the body, not a real 60’s , I know…

    I’m going to make this dress as my first project, too! I was worried that a dress might be too big of project as the first one, but you’ve convinced me otherwise! Thanks :) *I’ll post my results after completion!

    Thank you all!!! Yes, it’s really my very first project!!! First time that I use a sewing machine!! I always wanted to learn to sew and build garments, I don’t know why I postponed it… But few weeks ago my bf gave me this machine…And now i want to sew everything,,,:)

    Well, the dress does have a lot of imperfections, especially in the finishing inside..But, yes, the overall looks good, i am proud of it… It’s good to count with this community to learn and exchange ideas! I hope to learn more with you all!
