Work in progress

Last week I told you that I had several ideas for upcoming projects. I was all inspired by the warm weather and even started a dress. Well that's about as far as I got. (started) Here's a look at my work in progress. This is a simple dress, well it should be. But since I didn't have a pattern and am trying to figure it out on my own, I'm having a little difficulty. The pattern I used had a zipper and I omitted that part. I have it all sewn together, but want to put elastic in the waist band. I've never done that before so I'm hesitant.

I really want to master this dress because I can see myself making it in several colors. As a matter of fact I already have this dress in black that I bought last summer. This style dress is everywhere and I could easily just buy it, but I want to figure out how to make it!

I'll try to keep you posted on my progress. But remember the ruffled purple dress? Yeah, never finished that. Oh well! If nothing else I'm practicing and learning!

**Note**  The dress will have straps. It's currently pinned to the dress form as I haven't figured out the elastic waistband yet. Also please excuse my photography skills. We have a real issue with light in our new place. (there's only 2 windows)

This is so cute! I think it'll look really good as a maxi dress also!

I keep saying I'm going to sew a dress very soon. I keep seeing cute dresses in Anthro, but lets face it I don't want to spend $100 on a single piece of clothing.
