Dress Making 101 - Coffee Date Dress Part 1

Well... I've always been a "crafty" seamstress. I like to try out all types of crafts without going too far out on a limb. I have decided that I'm gonna branch out and actually try making something I can wear. I found this cute dress, The Coffee Date Dress (cute name), as a free download.

You can find the pattern and instructions here.

Just a warning - the pattern prints out as a FULL SIZED pattern. which means no need for enlargements. Because of this, there are LOTS of pages and they have to be pieced together and taped before you can cut out your pattern. I'd say the whole process of piecing and taping took me about 30 minutes.

This is as far as I got on day 1 - piecing the pattern.

Stay with me (and pray with me) as I try to make MY VERY FIRST ADULT SIZE DRESS!
