It's Done!

It's done. Yay! I've finished my daughter's dress. It's such a good feeling that it's all done.

It's also a very good thing I decided to make a practice dress before cutting into the expensive fabric for my daughter's First Communion dress. I certainly learned a lot in the process of making this dress. I've made a lot of dresses in the past but it's been a while. To top that off, there were things in this pattern that I've never done in the way they said it should be done.

I know there are adjustments I need to make on the next dress but I don't think this one is too bad. Besides, it leaves Ilaria some growing room. See:



The important thing is that Ilaria likes the dress. I know this is true because she wants to wear it to play in. That's NOT happening any time soon. LOL!

Until next time, Happy Creative Time!
