A dress 5 years in the making.

A dress 5 years in the making.

I bought this fabric 5 years ago, made the dress around 4 years ago, planned to remake the dress 3 years ago, pledged to remake the dress on the blog 1.5 years ago, and finally remade the dress. Hurray!

P450-IMG_9071I’ve been plowing through a bunch of nearly done projects lately; perhaps it’s due to the Magic of all the Tidying I’ve done. Or perhaps, because I am slated to start Fashion Design at VCC in the fall, starting new projects doesn’t make sense.

P450-IMG_9075I used the skirt from the original dress, and the bodice is the T-shirt pattern that came with the Sewing with Knits Craftsy course. I made a size medium.

P450-IMG_9078The dress isn’t perfect, one of the pockets is a bit wonky, but I’ve already worn it twice, which is a lot for a dress. If I get sick of it, I’ll make it into a dress for Adeline.


My mom hated the original dress, and I defended it adamantly, until I saw it in pictures. I’ll see what she thinks of the new version. Do you have any projects waiting to be remade?
