My dress

I've talked about it. I've told a few of you that I completed it. But I hadn't shown anyone pictures, yet. So, without further ado, here is the dress I made for myself last week.

These first pictures were taken in a poorly lit hotel room so you may not get the full effect but I hope you take my word that it turned out very well. And most importantly, I could zip it up.

This dress is a heavy flannel and the band around the ribs is corduroy. I put in my first invisible zipper. It was a learning process but it actually isn't that difficult.

This beauty is fully lined. I should have taken a picture of the lining. It is a great royal blue cotton. This is a winter dress, for sure. And the good thing is there is a lot of winter left!

I love it. The hours it took to make were so worth it. Now I just need to get back my pre-Christmas diet so it will fit properly! 

What do you think? Would you wear it? Okay, imagine it without the pink tights because I know those are throwing most of you off!

    The dress is adorable with the pink sash and tights. I love that you used flannel and then corduroy for the pink.

    You’ve done a fabulous job of your dress and it fits like a glove. Well done. Invisible zippers are definitely the way to go once you mastered how to put them in.
