If you have been following my progress on the dreaded project, then you know the accomplishment this is!
The fabric: Pretty to look at, horrid to work with. It frayed and slipped and mocked me every step of the way, but I beat it!
The pattern: Super cute, but oh so confusing! It is a special Project Runway design from McCall’s. It’s nice they let you pick all the elements, but that makes for a little more paying attention to the steps.
I love how I have the freedom with downloadable patterns to cut each size to my liking, instead of having to fold the pattern to get the size I need.
So I had the idea with this store-bought pattern, to just make a copy of the pattern piece and then cut it to my size. It made for one less headache along the way
Back of dress
As I was making this dress, I swore I would never make it again. In my delerium, I couldn’t believe that anyone would even make it at all! But now that it is done and I see how adorable it is, I think I might make another….just without this satan satin material.
