In my studio... chevron dress for AJ

I'm finally starting to notice an improvement in my sewing skills. Using a great pattern and fabric helps, too!

Of course, I can't ever make something without making my own modification and here's what I did this time around.


* shortened the length of the pattern
* french seams on sides (did not adjust the pattern since my daughter is only 14 months old and there was already plenty of room)
* folded over the underarm seams instead of using bias tape
* ran a ribbon through the casing for the ties
* used a double needle for the hem

Yay for small successes!
