Yesterday I made a conscious effort to wear a dress that I had made awhile ago. When I think about it, it may have been the second or third thing I made when I started sewing. Some of you may have seen the photos I posted on face book yesterday:
I got the fabric online from Mood — of course! Its Vogue pattern V1353 by Kay Unger. Its starting to feel like fall here in the Southwest, so I threw on some cute boots and a little knit top (made in high school). I used to knit quite a bit before I took up sewing. Now unfortunately, I haven’t knit much of anything recently. The last thing I knit were really cute legwarmers for my cousin, that I thought were going to be the death of me!
Once of the first things that needed to happen was making sure that the pattern on the dress matched up (which is why I have yet to tackle plaids). Luckily I had my mom to help me. She is the master at matching up patterns!
It is also fully lined and has an invisible zipper.
