Believe it or not, I actually followed a store-bought pattern and made a dress! Trust me, this is big news for me, because I am not a fan of patterns... as you can probably tell if you read my blog, I prefer tutorials from the Internet instead! However, my sister wanted me to make her a dress, and she wanted one like the pillowcase dresses I make for toddler girls. So I found this pattern:
View A is the one I made (the one she is modeling). It really does look like a pillowcase dress for adults!
I had one stumble as I was making it... entirely my own fault, nothing to do with the pattern. All in all, it was pretty straightforward and easy to do.
Now if I could just get up the nerve to try buttonholes, I could finish the jacket I started for her last year!!
