Making the Dress

Using a pattern I made a dress. It took a weekend to do and was a sharp learning curve for me. I’d never made a dress before, and a lot of the terminology n the pattern was new to me. Luckily my parents were able to help me out a lot, and now I think I would be able to do it again myself following the pattern. I had never sewn a zip before, and the way it’s done is actually quite interesting: you have to baste (sew) the seam up first, then attach the zip, then undo the first stitches to reveal it.
