Many years go I took a stab at making clothes. Didn't go too well. Had trouble sizing to my shape. And I learned I was horrible with sleeves.
After buying a dress form, I decided to have another go. Found a pattern that looked easy and picked up some cheap fabric (just in case I messed up or hated it).
It came out better than I expected! And I was able to fit the sleeves perfectly on the first try! There are a few things I would change if I use this pattern again, but all in all, it came out well!
Pattern by New Look #6863.
As I was cleaning out my closet last weekend of clothes to donate, I found an old dress I had forgotten about. Not a fan of the pattern - green floral dress with a sheet plaid overlay. But I like the style. So one of these days, I'm going to take it apart and use it as a pattern for a new dress to make. But this has a zipper - duhn Duhn DUHN... I'll keep you posted.
