1st dress attempt

I received my new sewing machine about 3 weeks ago. I had a sewing machine before that never did work right, as a result I have very little sewing experience. I am an absolute beginner. Right now I am in the practice stages, only using patterns I have and material I have or from the thrift store. I didn't have enough of any one fabric to make a whole dress- I probably would not have chosen these fabrics from a fabric store, but hey it was good practice.
I learned something new every time I make something. One of these days I will make something I actually want to keep.


  1. Awesome dress!! You did really well making it! It looks great!

  2. That is totally kewl .. I like you would have never put those together at the store .. but I would love to wear that dress it is so me .. LOL!! The color grouping is amazing .. you did a really great job ..

    Ta Ta Ha Ha,

  3. That is wonderful...I'm really hoping to learn how to sew because it seems so fun. You are an amazing sewer, that is very cute fabric! I learn something new every time I sew, as well. Isn't that great? :)

  4. This really is a pretty dress! If you still dont like it, just tie a ribbon sash around her waiste to match. That might make a difference. So wonderful to find another grown woman who loves to make clothes for her AG dolls!!!

  5. I really like how you mixed the prints.

  6. I've just found your blog and I think it's really inspiring, it will be an honor for me if you can visit mine too, and if you want to follow, it will be a pleasure to follow you back! :) <3

    Never too old for dolls.
