My first dress

Welcome back!

Today, pictures of the first dress I ever made. This was back in 2012 to wear to my friend Denise’s wedding.

Pattern: Burda Style Sewing Handbook 2011 dress, Melissa’s variation.

Fabric: a floral woven natural fiber and a stretchy black polyester. You can imagine that the sewing for this first project was pretty much a nightmare…

I didn’t know very well at the time how to deal with full bust adjustments or that sort of thing, so the fit is not the best, but I felt pretty!

    By the way, La Sewista is having a very informative series of posts on how to take our sewing to the next level : I’ve been learning a lot so far.
