Remember this pattern I won? Well I finished my first dress with it! I had to lengthen in 7 1/2″ to make it fit my torso and make it long enough. (I am working on the men’s jacket altering, I’ve just run into a couple problems. The post will come soon!) Afternoon DressAfternoon Dress

There is a center front seam so I decided to add a ruffle. How does it look? The dress is great because it looks good with or without a belt.

  1. I like the ruffle in the front, it adds more interest, almost like a little tie, I also like the fabric you shoe for your dress, very pretty.
