This was the first dress I sewed on my own. It was quite intimidating. I took it one step at a time. First, cut out all the pieces. Then sewed the pockets, the body pieces. Took a break. Then sleeves, neck lines, etc. The most frustrating part of this dress was the plaid fabric. I had such a hard time matching the front body piece and the back body piece exactly. I should have paid more attention when cutting the fabric. Lesson learned.
Loopy Mango had a trunk show at Fancy Tiger Crafts back in October. I bought a bunch of yarn to make their Aster Flower Scarf and their Slouchy PomPom Beanie to go with the dress. Unfortunately, like the Fen dress, I need to iron it every wash. I feel so proud wearing my all handmade outfit!
