My very own Maryy Dress

First project that I completely made ALONE I mean no one helped me while making and:
I learn how to gather (made some errors probably but it turned fine)
I made pleat instead of gathering the skirt of the dress because I liked it better (didn’t want it turn a little puffy, i’m huge enough!)
No interfacing for straps (I didn’t had all the tools)
Didn’t put buttons neither doing buttonholes.
Put a slightly shorter zipper.
Made a Burda size 42, even if my bust was slightly larger (38 inches)
I guess I’m pretty happy and pleased with my first project all by myself!

    Very flattering dress on you! Is that your spinning wheel? I’m drooling over it!

      Thanks! Yes it’s a Kromski, Minstrel one! I really like it both the dress i’m wearing right now and the spinning wheel! =)

      I have an old Louet S10, I love it. I did look at Kromski’s, though. Maybe when I get my second wheel. ;) And you so don’t look huge.
