The Summer of No Pants 2011 Week One
Sorry for the bad picture. I decided to wear my dress yesterday and meant to take a picture before we left the house but like most crazy mommies trying to get everyone ready to go and into the car on time taking a picture of my dress just slipped my mind. So last night around 9:30 PM I was able to get a picture to share. I promise next week I will do better!
I have a maxi dress that I love, it's my favorite. So I decided to use that dress to make a pattern for this dress. Let's just say that it didn't turn out quite like I wanted it to. I learned something very important with my level of sewing skills it's important to stick to patterns. Hopefully, in the future I will be able to ditch the patterns and create a dress without one but for now I will stick to the patterns.
I am happy with the dress but there are some flaws, nothing major and according to my husband you can't see them, but I know they are there. I keep telling myself it's the first one I made without a pattern and imperfections are to be expected.
I am super excited about next week. I have found the perfect summer dress pattern and found some cute cotton fabric on sale. I am ready to get started now!
