Holy Moly Me oh My! Its the My Dress!

After two extensive Sundays of working on this dress. And then having it taken apart and sewn back together again…it is finally completed! To give you a back story, my good friend Brooke has recently launched her own line of patterns. The first pattern she designed was an adorable birthday dress for girls. But I waited to test out her second pattern, the “My Dress” as this one is a woman’s dress. It’s true. I am a selfish sewer who mostly…err…only focuses my sewing energy into replenishing my closet. Sad but true. But I like to think I am very selfless in other areas of my life. Annnnnyways, so I joined her “test group” to test out the pattern. I learned more about sewing during this test class then I have with any of my other projects. I completed my first invisible zipper. And also used lining for the first time. And I think Brooke really appreciated having the feedback on how easily we were able to work through her pattern. For this dress, I have had my eye on some beautiful green rayon print. I love the way it hangs and moves really well for the skirt part and was a great contrast to the stiffer woven cotton houndstooth fabric that I used for the top part of the dress. Overall I think it is my favorite garment I have created so far and I am beyond proud of the new Debbie Brooke Designs patterns and look forward to many many more amazing patterns that can become selfish creations for my closet!
