The dress!

I finished my 1940s dress yesterday morning, about half an hour before I had to leave for my cousin's wedding.  Things got rushed towards the end - the hem certainly could've gone better (it is significantly shorter in the back than in the front), and some weird twisty things happened along the back of the neck, but overall, it's cute.  It's an actual dress; I wore it all night, ate in it and danced in it and drove in it, and it didn't fall apart.  This was my first attempt at anything more complicated than a cotton sundress, so despite its flaws, I'm happy.

I'm the one on the right.


  1. Wow! You made that?! It's gorgeous! I am way impressed!

  2. Yeah, I do love it, Liz. It looks great on you, too!
