    A couple months ago I made my first dress (and first garment for that matter) and became totally hooked! I'm so excited to be using all these gorgeous quilting cotton prints for something other than just quilts. Working on a garment is a nice break when I want to sew, but not on my current quilt WIP. I need lots of improvement in some areas (can we say zippers!) but practice is what will make me more skilled.

    These are my two recent dresses, both Serendipity Studios patterns (I really LOVE her patterns). Both perfect for the summer heat which is heavy upon us already (94 degrees today).

    My current favorite color combo, aqua and red

    Very nice! It is good to have different things to switch from and to. Just keep sewing!

    They are both so cute. You have done an excellent job on both fabric selection and assembly. Be sure to show us what you create next.

    Your dresses are great and you did an awesome job on them! I don't have the patience for garment sewing. Haven't done it in decades.

    Both of them are very cute & you did a nice job! I sewed lots of clothes for years then transitioned into quilting- sounds like you did the opposite! I still like to make a garment now & again.
