I made a dress: Care Bears
I also ended up picking up some Barbie fabric, but I don't think I'll be making that dress for a few weeks. June looks like it'll be a busy month for me. Anyways, on to some pictures!
Look, it's actually fitted! I learned that I had to add extra darts because of my bigger bust. The darts I added aren't perfect. They don't exactly line up.. but it's better than having a sack for a dress.
For next time; Make sure the darts I add are lined up and make them look nice. make the dress a bit longer. Probably make the top longer because the skirt already uses so much fabric. Make the neck line lower. Try a side zipper. Try adding sleeves or a collar.
P.S. I showed my mom some of the pictures of the new dresses I made and she was pretty shocked that I made them. She went out and bought me some fabric that wasn't 'childish' (her words), so expect a more 'adult looking' dress in the future. The fabric she picked out isn't bad just not something I'd pick out for myself.
