My very first Silk Dupioni Dress!

finished product first

This is the first of the tutorial that I'm starting.
I spent an entire week last week working on this dress. A bit obsessive--but I like how it's turning out so far! I'll be posting chronological photos of the process as a kind of "tutorial" for my friends that have been asking me how to sew. It's definitely a lot more complicated to make a pattern from scratch, but the general idea is similar.

next sewing project

Attempting to make a dress for K & A's wedding as I'm in the party. This is the mock-up. Long story short, but I already did make a dress but decided I don't like it after all. I'm much more excited about this fabric and style. :) I'll post the old dress soon...
