plaid back-to-school dress

Colts Neck, New ...






You can call me a dressmaker. My girlfriend Jamie and I are very happy with how this one came out. The fabric was a little easier to work with than the last dress; the result being that this dress has a more finished look.

It’s another bodice top, but this one has an A-line Skirt. I put two trouser style pockets in the skirt. I had never made pockets before; I studied a pair of my pants to understand their construction. Jamie loves how big they are.

I finished the dress in time for Jamie to wear it to the wedding of a couple of our friends.

This will probably be my last project for a while. I’m uploading it from school, and I didn’t take my sewing machine along for the semester. Mistake? maybe…

    not to mention your girlfriend is gooooogeous. looks well done, and the colour is great, and the fitting, and everything.

    go fetch your sewing machine any weekend and make more. GO!
