My first dress

Simplicity 3823

Simplicity 3823
I learned to sew on my summer off from nursing school last year.  This little dress was my first project.  I quickly learned that patterns never fit.  I measured at about a 14 and ended up with something more like a 10.  I didn't like the blousiness of the bodice, so my husband and I scrapped it and drew a new one in muslin.  I think it is a little on the low-cut side, but he thinks it is swell ;-) Also, the halter design of the straps wasn't working for me, so we just attached them as shown.  So much for a simple first project, eh?

Pattern: Simplicity 3823
Fabric: Printed cotton
