I really LOVE how mine turned out. Just as cute as I thought it would be! But WOW I had a hard time getting a good picture of my completed dress. The first day I tried to capture it, my lens kept fogging up from the humidity. The next day I just didn't try hard enough I guess. But take my word for it. It's cute.

Let's get started! Make sure you've got these things before we start;

  • Daphne Dress Kit (you can order one here if you don't have one yet)
  • Scissors (fabric scissors work best)
  • Thread for your machine 
  • Pins
  • Optional: Pinking sheers (the zig zag scissors for fabric). 

New to sewing? You might want to take a look at my intro to sewing course I did last year.

    This is the prettiest dress. My daughter would be over the moon if I managed to whip one of these up!! I’m not really… ready… so I’ll bookmark your tutorial and get to it after I’ve done your Intro To Sewing course! Many thanks. x

    I did today’s tutorial~perfect amount of time to spend sewing while my children took naps! I learned sewing basics from my mom as a girl, but often became frustrated with things I dreamt of making, and they just didn’t turn out. So, I haven’t sewn anything for years, and am cautiously, but excitedly participating in this sew-along. I have the same dress/kit as in your pictures and love it! The part for today turned out great, and I’m eager for tomorrow’s “lesson”. Thanks so much!!
