I have officially completed my first pattern! I wanted some new dresses for summer, so off I went to Hobby Lobby. A few weeks ago was 99cent pattern week. And I don't know if I can ever buy a pattern without 99cent week now. How amazing is that?? Next I went to Hancock Fabrics, and found some fabulous fabric for 40% off! All together this dress cost me less than $18. I think that is an awesome price for this type of dress. This is the pattern I got....
Here is mine! Please don't pay attention to how awkward I am in front of the camera. I hate "posing". HA!
The pattern was pretty easy, after a few calls to my mom. I had never even looked at a pattern, much less read one and cut it out. I'm blessed to have a VERY patient mom that will allow me to call her 4 times in less than an hour. I also learned how to do button holes! I thought that would be the end of this dress....but I finally decided to get out my machine instructions and read them. HA! So I conquered the button hole AND a pattern! I am too excited!
I absolutely love it, and have already worn it a few times. Isn't that the best?? Since my daughter will not wear what I make her, I have turned to myself for my sewing.
I like to party over here!
Have a great day, and thanks so much for reading my blog.
