This was a fun personal sewing 101 project to familiarize myself with my machine. I created my own paper pattern with the intention of being able to make multiple versions of the dress in different weighted fabrics in the future. For my first version, I used an IKEA textile for their bold colours and simple patterns. Originally a shapeless square, I added form to the shoulders and under the arms. The biggest difficulty was getting all the pieces to match up. For a novice I guess this turned out alright.
