My First dress using New Look Pattern 6968

Good day My Friends!

I wanted to share with you my first dress using New Look Pattern. I have to admit  that I am not pro in sewing. I learned dress making way back in high school and thats it. I hardly even remember some of the techniques our teacher taught  us. When I started sewing again, I had to make simple project first like throw pillow cases. I did a lot of  research and watch tutorials in you tube. When I got little confidence, I tried making my first ever dress using patterns. I bought these at Spotlight and fortunately, it was on sale.

At first, it  was overwhelming by just looking at the instructions and the different pattern sizes. We’ll there is always a “first time”. It took me some time to understand the step by step procedures and just getting it right to my body measurement. So, here is the pattern…

The result…

I  think it’s  not  bad for a first timer. What do you think? please drop a comment.

Thanks for reading. See you!

Be inspired, be motivated.
