More girly garments: Gold-embroidered cotton dress!
It's finally finished! My new dress that I'll get to wear to my first Broadway show with K this Saturday! : )
I started cutting out this dress on Sunday, and last night (Wed) I put the finishing touches on it. It was a struggle b/c I used a Simplicity pattern as a base but I ended up modifying a lot of it, since the design wasn't to my liking. I also found brushed brass buttons that were lying around the house from grandma's sewing drawers, and vintage covered elastic that's beautifully crafted for the button loops.
I am very happy with how it turned out, b/c I'm in love with this gold thread embroidered cotton fabric I found a couple months back. I knew that if I didn't start something in the next couple of months the fabric would never see the light of day. Very happy--wish I could've bought these gold ballet flats that I fell in love with a while back but didn't purchase.
