[dressmaking]

So happy to have finally gotten over my dressmaking phobia and made dress #2 for G! Here she is modelling the dress. (she chose the fabrics herself, but would actually have liked the skirt portion to be the amy butler's lotuses)
this photo is too funny! i have no idea what she was doing! She's actually holding playdoh in her hands, i was so worried she'll be leaving some behind on the dress! hah.
Chickened out of making the back with a zipper like the pattern called for. Instead, did 2 loops and buttons. The dress looks better with an inner t-shirt layer anyhow :)
This is the '100cm' pattern. I think i'll make one longer next time.
Going to tackle pants next! :) And who knows, i might even be brave enough to attempt a pattern for myself.... heh.
