Adventures in Dress Making: Part V–Finished!

6 Jun

I finished my first piece of clothing! The Family Reunion Dress by Oliver + S for my little girl. I’m not sure when it’ll fit her, but by the look of the finished product maybe this summer.

Here is the completed dress:

Family Reunion - Day 5 (5 of 7)

And the back:

Family Reunion - Day 5 (1 of 7)

Some details:

Buttons on the front (I decided to go with 2 instead of 4) and buttons on the back :

Family Reunion - Day 5 (3 of 7) Family Reunion - Day 5 (2 of 7)

Sleeves:

Family Reunion - Day 5 (7 of 7)

And hem:

Family Reunion - Day 5 (6 of 7)

It is faaaaar from perfect. I completed this project as part of my sewing buddy challenge and the goal of the entire program is to sew more and learn new skills. I think I accomplished that. I will likely try my hand at other clothing items, and I will probably even make this same dress again.
