My First Dress

During the week I got a few patterns in the mail. I really wanted to make myself a dress.. I also got some gorgeous fabric in the mail so instantly I knew that was the material for my first ever dress. I have never made a dress before so I was really glad when I pulled out the pattern and discovered it was a super easy one... no zips... no fancy cuts... nothing more than basic.

The pattern was the Clair Cami Pattern. It makes from short cami/tunic style top to a full length maxi dress. :)

This was my final creation. (I altered the neck line though)

As you can see I did the old photo in the mirror thing again LOL. When I cut my pattern I decided to do the above knee length... which actually ended up being VERY short... like I cant bend over short... so I added in the layer you can see down the bottom before I put my hem on.

Next time I am going to alter it a little again. Bringing in the sides under the arms a tiny bit, a different neck line again... and maybe adding a sash around the middle instead of the small draw string.

Here are some up close shots.
