Dress Experiment Finished

A Friday Finish

I appreciate all the encouragement I have received during this experiment! I think it has worked out great and I am very pleased with the end result. The test dress is done and now I hope to complete her Easter dress! But first I have another project to complete for a friend for April.

Now, I just need to get my little model to put the buttons on! I might just use hooks or snaps to make the bodice a little tighter if I need to? What do you think?


When I finished sewing the skirt to the bodice I realized that were they were sewn together it might rub on Zoey's delicate skin. So, I added a small piece that covered the stitches and increased the lining a little longer!

Please ignore my gold thread! I am glad somethings are hidden from the outside world.

  1. Cute - can't wait to see it on your model! :)

  2. It looks beautiful, Lisa. You did a wonderful job. If you have a serger, try finishing the seams with it. If not, I am sure there is a stitch on your machine you can use. I use the double overlock stitch a lot of times. A wide, close zigzag also works great. Anything will hold the seams together to keep them from irritating her skin. Keep sewing. You will be a pro before you know it.

  3. It look beautiful, congrats !

  4. YAY!!! You did it! AND you're willing to make another one. It is very nice and Zoey will be proud to wear it. I can't wait to see the next one.

  5. ohhh - it turned out so cute!!! I love it!!!
