One Dress Three Ways

Last night I finished my first real sewing project and I'm so excited to share it with you! I made a dress using Kwik Sew's Pattern 3675. I just learned to sew last month and have been taking lessons at Sew LA- it's the cutest little shop ever with the cutest fabric ever! One of my favorite things about sewing is that I'm able to pick my own fabric. I love quirky, whimsical clothing and there's not enough of these in stores!

I love being able to style a dress in so many different ways. So the first thing I did was pick through my closet to see how I could wear this dress! Here are some photos...does anyone know how how I could post pictures side by side on this blog? That would be way cuter :)

blouse- Anthro; shoes- Seychelles

I can't wait for someone to ask me where I got my dress so I can tell them I made it myself! But what I don't want them to say is.."Um...did you make that, um, dress?" Ha!

For my birthday my husband bought me a sewing machine. I've been practicing making little projects and I'm working on making another dress in this super cute fabric I found- wait till you see it!
Do you already sew and make your own clothes? Or do you wanna learn? It's super fun and addicting!
