This is the as promised update!
So today I took a little trip to the fabric store (had to drive for 40 mins to get to a decent one...) and I got enough fabric, zippers, thread, and buttons for 2 shirts, 2 dresses, and a pair of shorts! All for the
I think the first thing I'm going to make is this dress:
and in this particular fashion with the bow in the back:
The fabric I got for this dress is this color:
It's kinda a peachy pink (:
I think it'll make a nice spring/summer dress.
This is probably the simplest pattern I have, and that's why I'm starting with it (:
Apparently button holes are the most difficult to sew, so my other dress, and my shorts will be some of the last things I make.
Here's the other dress:
and here's the fabric and buttons I got for it:
I'm for sure going for the whole nautical feel to this dress.
I'll probably end up doing a combo of the 2 drawings above.
I want the collar with the stripe (that's what the white cloth's for),
and the flared skirt (with 2 buttons).
I know you can't tell here but this dress has pockets! That's so cool (:
For the shorts I'm keeping it simple and classy:
Navy blue fabric + gold buttons, and zipper.
The pattern looks like this:
The last 2 things are actually from the same pattern, but different versions (:
I'm going to be making the one second from the left, and the middle one (without the bottom ruffle).
For the "green" one I got these buttons and fabric:
The floral is the main part of it, and the dark blue is like the plaid part on the sketch.
And the buttons are self explanatory (:
For the middle pattern I got these buttons and fabric:
this is by far my favorite fabric, so I'll most likely make this one second (:
Did I make good choices?
Wish me luck?
