Any who, in true procrastinator fashion, I didn't start sewing the dress until 8 o'clock the night before picture day. Thankfully the instructions were very easy to follow and I even installed my first invisible zipper! Woohoo! It was not very hard at all and I think I want to put invisible zippers in everything now. I took a few little breaks so I didn't finish up the dress until almost 1 a.m. But it was worth it when I woke up a few hours later and showed Erin the dress. She was so happy with how it came out. So it was worth the late night sewing and the sticking myself with pins multiple times (I really need to invest in a thimble) and burning my fingers on the iron. Late night sewing + Meghan = lots of scars
Pattern: oliver + s School Photo Dress size 4 with 31/2 inches added to the length
Fabric: main fabric: vintage yellow floral - circa late 1960's lining: old off white twin bed sheet
Notions: Coats and Clark invisible zipper purchased at Joann
|she insisted on wearing these sunglasses - it sorta adds to the retro 60s vibe, no?|
