I just finshed making a dress for myself. I believe it's the first dress I've ever made for myself. My plan is to wear it out to dinner on my husbands birthday. I wouldn't let him see it while I was making it, nor would I let him see it once it was finished. It's nothing amazing or anything, so don't get excited, but it's cute. It's a size too small though - which has me really bummed out. It's snug :-(
I would post pictures of the dress right now (since Kevin doesn't read my blog) but since Kevin won't be seeing it until his birthday I won't be able to get any pictures of myself in the dress until then. Mid Feb. I can post a picture of the pattern though (McCalls M6518):
Since making this dress I've found a few other dress patterns that I'm interested in. I might make a dress for a late-Feb. dinner. I might make a dress for random casual spring/summer affairs. hmmmm.
I think I also want a dressform.
