Tiered Dress

A few months ago, my husband consolidated our two desktop PCs into one, which freed up a desk in one of the bedrooms. I was happy because this meant my poor little sewing machine finally had a home and would no longer be forced to camp out on the dinner table whenever I was working on a project! I was able to complete a sewing cover and a few other small projects before my sewing machine up and died and I had to take it to a shop to be repaired.

Thankfully, it just had some thread caught up in a place I couldn't reach and so it didn't cost me an arm and a leg to get it back.

I dug out a pattern (Simplicity 5685)and some fabric that I bought sometime last year and got work on this dress:

I Made This Dress!

Didn't get a very good picture of it, but there it is. I enjoyed making it; the pattern was easy to follow and very forgiving - important when you're a haphazard sort of seamstress like I am.

That is super cute! I just started sewing, haven't made much, (except that Jawa outfit I still haven't shown anyone...ha ha) and I cannot sew a straight line to save my life!

My Mom used to make dresses like that for me. Miss them. Thanks for the pictures.

Lovely work on the dress! And my sewing machine is camped on the kitchen table too. This post might inspire me to find a better home for it so I can get a project finished!

What an adorable dress. Keep up the good work. You might inspire me to actually try using my machine. Maybe.
