My first dress using a pattern!

I have been scared of dress patterns for a while. Sometimes I feel like they are written in another language or something, so I stayed away. This one was pretty simple and it only took me one night of sewing next to BFF, with her reading me step by step of course!


I got the fabric for .50 cents a yard at Walmart.


I added pockets because pockets are awesome!


Sadly my eyes are closed in this picture but I decided to share it anyway because it has my little sweetie.

Pattern here.

I love how it turned out and I have more confidence to try another pattern and use this one again.

I love it! The fabric works perfectly, you've done an awesome job. I know what you mean about patterns. I'd like to make more for myself but I can never seem to get the fit right.

Oh goodness! This is almost giving me the courage to pull out a pattern for me! ... Almost ;) It looks awesome! And at $.50 a yard you can't beat the cost! Love it!!
