Dressmaking

This week I've made two dresses for Bryn, ...both of which were failures.
Once again, I am overly confident, thinking I can made dresses without a pattern. The shape of this dress is just blah, and I don't know what happened to those sleeves. I tried it on her and it looked like little house on the prairie or something. Bad. And the second dress? I was about hal way finished with it when "Abort! Abort! Abort!" started flashing through my head. And so abort, I did.
Sewing with knit is not my forte.
Sewing without a pattern is not my forte.
Sewing clothing is not my forte.
And that's that.
If you'll excuse me, I'm going to gulp down a handfull of dark chocolate covered raisins.

Laura, the dress is darling. Stop being such a perfectionist! You're making us all look bad.

Totally Little House on the Prairie! Something that one girls who's crying 75% of the time would wear, maybe with a bonnet.

I can't believe you tried to do a dress without a pattern. That is awesome. I haven't ventured there yet... you are brave. I think it looks great for a first "without a pattern" dress.
