Fourth Sewing Project - Trapeze Mini-Dress

Well... I had this big entry written up and myspace puked when I tried to submit it.  I lost everything I wrote.  So now I'm tired, and mad, so I'm just posting the pics.  I might update this later.  Might.   :-)

Pattern - Simplicity 3739

Things learned:

  • how to make pleats
  • how to use rolled hem foot
  • how to make hanger loops
  • how to install hidden zipper

I used 100% cotton with cherries over subtle pink/white grid print, and satin ribbon trim in Antique White.
