I made a dress!

It's been 10-15 years since I attempted making a dress (after a failed attempt in high school). But, I saw a pretty summer dress in a sewing book Franky gave me for Christmas and decided to have a go.

From Sew La Tea Do, by Pip Lincolne, p. 51
I used some curtains that my Mum gave me (yes, my darling sister, very Sound of Music). The straps took me a while to fold/iron/sew, but the rest of the dress was easy!

It's a little baggier than I expected, but I'm still pretty happy :) I learnt some new skills & now I'm feeling braver about sewing another dress!

What new projects have you tried lately?
