I finished the ruffly dress this morning. That dress was almost out of my skill level for sewing... it was tough! I think it took me about 8 hours all together. And then I wasn't even thrilled with it. But Laina liked it and I guess that is all I can ask for!
Tonight we went to our favourite park so that I could take some photos for an assignment in my photography class. I had made the dress with this assignment in mind, so I bribed Laina to cooperate for some pictures and boy, she sure did this time! Here she is (and the dress is too big up top, so I criss-crossed the straps... it is only noticable from the back, but unfortunately you can see it gape in some of these pics. I will be altering it to fit better, but didn't have a chance yet!)
