Lady in Red!

I made a dress :)
(without a zipper!)
(or buttons)
(or too much trouble and frustration)
and it doesn't look like a bag!
But I have to say, without feeling too boastful, that this is also a dress I made from my very own pattern (I traced a pattern from another dress I liked). My mother was surely watching over me for this project, because it was the smoothest sewing project I've ever undertaken. In fact, the mending I did today was pretty easy, too. That's a good sign :)
Now, this dress, as it turned out, isn't exactly like I was envisioning, but I'm still very happy with it--it's very comfortable, very modest, and very red (which is just fun!).
I added a pocket, with a pretty patch for a splash of color, too.
And one of my very-own tags that Momma got me when I started sewing :)

This dress was, admittedly, my practice dress, because I wasn't overly attached to this material. I have other material I want to use with this same pattern (though there will undoubtedly be some modifications). Then I'll be all ready for the warm(er) summer weather, now! C'mon, sunshine... let's get going and burn up all this humidity!


  1. pretty pretty! Good job Anne.

  2. I really like it! Love the pocket and the tag is darling.

  3. Love the color and the tailoring, but I think what makes this little dress is the cute little figure in it.

  4. Very Cute! so proud of you and Mom is too. Maybe you can share the pattern with me in Rc for TG.
