the dress!


I did it!  I finished the dress for Devon's Little Dresses for Africa event! 

Here's what I learned:

- Seam allowances are important.  I didn't really pay attention to this and ended up with an extra inch of fabric which I tucked under and stitched over.  Oops.

- It's also really important to follow the instructions.  I got to the end and realized that I skipped the entire section on how to attach the straps. 

- Making a dress is a lot harder than making a purse.
