Ga Ga Ga Gingham


I love the arm details.
I'm swinging on a star!!!! 
(More like I'm so damn happy to have this dress finished)
Nibbling on some wild raspberries.
 
So all in all, this dress only cost me about $2.50. I suppose you could get a dress for this price at Wally World on sale without all the aggravation of making it. But where's the fun in that?

  3. You look really happy in this dress. I know you struggled with sewing it together, but wow, it's really cute on you.

    The fun in sewing it, even with the frustrations you had, is that no one else will EVAH have a dress exactly like it. :)

  5. Wow, this dress is amazing! I'm glad to see someone finishing a gingham project (my own has taken another turn for the worse). I very much like the bias tape accents.

  7. Lisa, this is lovely. You are an amazing seamstress. I've not sewn for decades now...I used to make so many of my clothes in high school, and I sewed my kids' and pajamas and robes when the boys were little, but knitting and spinning have taken over!

  9. That looks so nice! And all the details --Wow! No wonder it was work to get it all done. The pay-off for all that work is a lovely original dress.
