My Attempt

Yesterday in between a playdate and grocery shopping I whipped up this little dress. I have a million things I could have done during that time but I have had this dress in my head ever since I bought fabric and didn't want to lose the image.

I did not have a pattern so I simply used the knowledge I have gained from using patterns to make other items and as much sewing sense as I have, and prayed it would be wearable in the end. I love it. I am a little afraid of wearing it because I think it is more of a statement than I usually make but I am trying to conquer that fear. What better way than by wearing my own creations!?It is still a work in progress, I just have to put the finishing touches on, once I do I'll see if haha will take some pics for me again :)

I could do a tutorial if anyone thought it was worth it. It definately isn't a 20 minute skirt but don't let that scare you! And just so you know the plaid fabric cost me 99 cents at Goodwill and the grey knit on top cost me 1.75 at walmart in the scraps bin! With thread you are looking at a $3 dress!
