The Dress I Made!



I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend! I sure did with the temps going all the way up into the 50's. Still not quite warm enough for me, but I'll take it anyway! So, here is the dress I made! I obviously got my inspiration from the vintage dress I lost on Ebay a couple weeks ago. This is only the second dress I have ever made, and I made it without a pattern so it was quite the challenge. I'm very happy with it though! It doesn't have pockets like the other dress, but I think I'll add those later. Take care!

PS: If you look closely you can see the few feet on snow we still have on the ground here. Thats why I can't venture off the porch just yet. :o)

Great job! It looks so wonderful. I love the small stripes.

Kelley said...

Its so pretty...good for you. I made my first last year, but need to learn how to use my sewing machine so I don't have to sew by hand. You look really pretty!

Katie said...

Wow that is amazing! You did a really great job, the details are perfect! It really suits you, you look pretty as a picture.
Hopefully the weather will warm up a bit so you can wear it out in the sunshine!

Hope you've had a good weekend :)

Katie said...

P.S I just saw the dress you were inspired by in the other post, and think the one you made is much prettier :)

casey said...

Absolutely beautiful! I am so impressed that this is only the second dress you've ever made--you've got a lot of talent! :)

Sam said...

I can't believe you made that yourself! The first time that I saw the dress, I thought it was actually really vintage. And that without a pattern. That must be pretty hard. But you did an amazing job! I even think the dress you made is prettier then the actual dress.

Dear Mrs. E said...

You did a really good job with that dress! I love it.

Emily said...

Lovely dress! And only the second you've ever made?! Wow :) Great job, it really suits you! :)

Ooh, well done! It looks great!

Lo said...

I like yours even more!

Rhiannon said...

You made that without a pattern? It's perfect!!! If I had your sewing skills I wouldn't bother buying vintage dresses off of Ebay--I'd just re-create them on my sewing machine. :)

Nice job!

Oh, that's such a cute dress! I love the little lovely bow on it. It has such a spring-summer like feel to it, even if it works perfectly well while waiting for that time too :)

Ariella said...

Wow, it's really beautiful. I can't believe it's only the second dress ever you made since it looks so great!

It's surely going to be a great dress for summer!

alexandra said...

so beautiful! great job. you are so pretty!

Shannon (A beautiful Dream) said...

It's ace. Such a sweet shade of blue. I think the pockets would make a good addition though.

Helen said...

that's fantastic! i have no sewing talent whatsoever :(

love and youth said...

what an adorable dress! especially because you made it yourself... im impressed! xx

Sacaton June said...

i meant to tell you how wonderful this dress is when I first saw this post! i can't believe you made it without a pattern!!!!! that would have taken me months and months and months and come out all crooked. great job!

Enthusiasts of the films of Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski (Blind Chance, Dekalog, The Double Life of Véronique, Three Colours Trilogy, etc) are invited to drop by my chatroom at the Brasserie Alizé on the anniversary of the director’s death, this coming Friday evening, 13 March 2009, from around 18:00 GMT. Please pass on the invitation to others and hopefully see you there!

The Clothes Horse said...

That dress is absolutely adorable!

Q's Daydream said...

Thank you all so much!

Rhiannon:Yup I made it without a pattern. I measured everything before, then used chalk to mark the fabric. For the skirt I used a vintage dress with a skirt I liked and measured out the fabric from that. Takes lots of focus. Take Care!

Daisy said...

Stunning dress!

the yellow elephant said...

you are truly talented, my dear! love the dress...

i do also have to live with snow a bit longer, though here it's 1 meter tall!... awful!

Ashley B ;-) said...

You should post a pattern for this dress on Burda Style! I want that dress in every colour!

Cynthia said...

This is beautiful! I believe you really wanted this dress to do it yourself. In french we say "on n'est jamais mieux servi que par soi-même", it means : the best thing is the one you do yourself (excuse my english...). Well this is true! You really did a great job ;)

LadyRed said...

Rock it Lady! Mission accomplished.

melissa said...

this is so awesome!!! i love the bow! how did you do it???

Aya Smith said...

You are so absolutely adorable!

And boy, do I know your pain! I do the EXACT same thing on eBay. I wish I could make a dress too, to satisfy that feeling of loosing my dream dress! :(

The ScootaBaker said...

i'm in aw. i've had my sewing machine collecting dust. so sad. i'm scared even to thread a bobbin. i need to start small projects and work myself up to making a dress on my own. i LOVE that you whipped up a dress without a pattern to follow! you are my hero!

ps-bought a 60's red swing coat and only wish i could be wearing it now. 80 degrees isn't coat-appropriate weather.
