I made a dress!!!

November 29, 2010

So this weekend I finally got around to using one of the patterns I picked up at the White Elephant sale in Oakland.

I made the dress… 4th from the left.

It turned out pretty well.  I got a lot of compliments when I wore it today.

I described the color to someone as “grape soda” and I think that’s pretty accurate.

For work today I wore it with a lacy, black camisole, a black cardigan, black tights and my black boots.  Very much my style and completely in my color scheme.

There is something to be said for making your own clothes.

I should do this some more.

Except for the part where I’ve picked up a pattern that is missing its instruction sheet…. and the company appears to have gone out of business.

Anyone have instructions for Style Made Easy 2117 by Style Patterns Ltd?  Because that might be next.

It should be hilarious to see what I end up making without instructions… for only my second dress… EVER.
