|Yes, summer is half over, but I somehow managed to finish my summer dress in time enough to wear it before fall arrives! Actually, in truth, I have not yet finished it completely - But it's done enough for pictures!|
Chip made this 50's wrap dress last year.
Since then she lost a lot of weight and had to put a lot of
pins in it to be able to wear it! I guess she now has a bit more
sewing to do on it.
Well, it's obviously a bit to late in the year to inspire you to make a summer dress of your own. But if you start now you might be able to make a dress in time for fall! If you have never made a dress before, I encourage you to try it! You can start by finding a cheap sheet in a 2nd hand store, then buy a pattern that you like. They often have pattern sales where you can get a pattern for 99 cents. That's about the only time I ever buy patterns. I hope you will try it and then let us know about it! Have fun sewing!
