My first proper dressmaking attempt.......

Here it is, my first proper dress with a pattern, my daughter went to see Hairspray with Guides on Saturday & had to dress up like the film, I couldn't find anything suitable in the local shops so I thought I'd give it a go....no I didn't find it easy! I think some patterns are incredibly hard to follow, & they leave big chunks of instructions out of it, so you have to use common logic to figure out what to do, I stil don't understand the language, this frustrates me-as it could be explained in regular english aaaaaagh......any way it's done now & she looked beautiful!...and by the way, that is my youngest behing her, hiding, thinking I don't know she's there!

You did a wonderful job with the dress! :-)

If you ever need help translating "pattern language" to English, just ask. I would be happy to help. :-)

Thanks Minikat, will remember that, I find it so time consuming...I like to be getting on with the creating part!
