Loveland, Colora...






So this is my first attempt at making a dress with no pattern, or not much of one anyway. I referenced the pattern used to make my daughter’s top and previous dress and then drafted a pattern using newspaper to make this one. It didn’t turn out as well as I would’ve liked, a bit wider than I thought also. But I learned a lot about construction, because of the ton of mistakes I made :), and also what a tremendous help a dress form would be when wanting to go it on your own. I am proud of the fact that is is fully lined :).

Material Notes

Cotton, fabric leftover from my daughter’s quilt and some from my grandmother’s stash.
Buttons that were either my great aunt’s or great grandmother’s.





New Look! pattern for reference and me :)
