so it only makes sense that i love sewing dresses!
Remember this dress that I made?
Someone asked about the pattern I used. I finally remembered to take a photo of it!
I am itching to make another dress (and maybe show anyone interested how to sew from a pattern!). I have a whole bunch of patterns to choose from and some thrifted fabric lying around so hopefully I can make some time to do it soon! So you think I should make another one from this pattern and maybe shorten it a bit? Or should I try something new?
Do you sew? Have you made anything lately?
ps. Check back later for a giveaway from another one of my lovely sponsors!
Oh gosh, so gorgeous! I am totes jealous - I really want to learn how to sew my own dresses, though I am rather scared of sewing! But I am determined to give it a go soon - a friend has recommended a beginner Colette pattern which is apparently nice and easy :)ReplyDelete
ugh, you are too good at sewing apparel. i am truly terrible at it.. patterns are the devil. :3ReplyDelete
haha;D lovely dress! it looks very nice, and you sewed sooo good! i sew notebooks, coasters, bags.. simple things.... and i msg you about my sponsoring;pReplyDelete
I think you should definitely make more! You look so good in vintage. I wish I could sew more than a button on, I'd love to make my own skirts they are so hard to find in my size! )o; I hope your day is amazing!ReplyDelete
you should totally make more :D the stuff you make is so cute! :DReplyDelete

Steffys Pros and Cons
I'd love to see more, that dress rocks!ReplyDelete
So Jealous!! I took a class for sewing 101 and we did skirts. I've been wanting to get into dresses.ReplyDelete
That dress you made is darling!
I just got a sewing machine - but have yet to figure out how to use it! I've never even sewed a button, but really want to learn! I would love to make some cute little dresses for myself!ReplyDelete
that's such a great dress. Your site is making me want to dust off my sewing skills.ReplyDelete
so so cute! I don't usually use patterns, but I would love to have that one!ReplyDelete
A sewing demonstration would be so helpful!!! I'm completely new to sewing (just got my first machine), and have been itching to make a dress. I'd love to learn to sew from patterns.ReplyDelete
I've always wished I could sew. My mom used to make the best stuff. I can't even sew a straight line, WITH the guides.ReplyDelete
Oh how gorgeous! You're very talented! :] xxReplyDelete
you have amazing sewing skills! by the way how are those aprons coming along?ReplyDelete
i love the color! after i am done making these bags and hats i really want to sew something for myself! i have been designing a cute bike jersey so i think i will move onto that when i am done!
I just love vintage dress patterns. I see so many I like and want to try to make.ReplyDelete
please take a moment to check out my giveaway:
YES I have been wanting to learn how to sew, specifically from patterns so I would love a tutorial on that!ReplyDelete
Wow, you made that dress?? Thats incredible! It looks amazing. I love the color. I only know how to hand stitch (sewing machine scare me for some reason, I need to move past that).ReplyDelete
It's just absolutely perfect. The color! Ah! I'm currently sewing a maxi dress out of some silk with feathers on it. I'm hoping it'll be perfect for summer if I can actually pull it off. Sewing with patterns is scary!ReplyDelete
I think you should definitely make another one! I love that pattern and the collar is adorable. I sew quite a bit. I mainly sew clothes for myself and a few things for around the house. It's all on my blog! I really need to get back into sewing though after our month away. It's hard when you have been away for so long to get back into it. But I have 2 projects cut out and ready to go so I may have to make time over the easter break.ReplyDelete
Confession: I've kind of been blog-stalking you for a while! :) My name is Kayla and I'm 16 and just started my own blog- and you were one of the people who inspired me to do it! hehe I love your style and personality and just wanted to stop by and say hi!ReplyDelete
this dress is the über doober cutest!ReplyDelete
I do sew. but when it comes to clothing, i have only made pj pants & wrap skirts.. simple stuff. If you choose to share your skills I will be all eyes... or something like that. haha
the dress is fantastic! I love sewing :)ReplyDelete
I especially love modifying old clothing to suit your taste!
I love to sew dresses, too! I make simple A-line & shift dresses from easy patterns : )ReplyDelete
I really want to learn how to sew like that! How long did it take you to be able to do dresses like that? That's totally awesome!ReplyDelete

miss merryweather's - sorry i totally forgot to answer your question! i have been sewing a bit since elementary school. in highschool i took fashion class and learned a lot! i will have to post the coat i made one day. it is from a 1969 pattern and i love it! anyways, i learned most things i know about sewing from highschool. we never really learned how to make our own patterns though. that is something that i really want to get better at.ReplyDelete
