{my first dress}

You may have seen this dress before, most recently on Katie.   This is the  fifth habitual dress that has been made in the studio – the third in this exact fabric combination, but it’s the first time I’ve ever sewn a dress all by myself!  That’s right – I decided to cut, press, pin and sew (with french seams, of course) this dress all without Jaime – on the day I needed to give it as a gift, no less.

Four hours after I read through the pattern, the dress was completely finished.  Surprisingly, the french seams were not as difficult as I thought they would be, and I just love the elegant way they finish the garment:

The soft, dusty colors and the 1930’s feel of both of these fabrics are quite charming.   The orange thread was chosen because that is what the machine happened to be threaded with – thankfully, it matched the fabric, because I have no idea how to thread a sewing machine.  Or a bobbin…

Overall, I am just so pleased with how this turned out!  I can’t wait to try sewing something else…
