    Great job! I am not, repeat NOT, a garment maker (having tried several through the years) but I admire those of you who can do it, finish it and then actually have it be wearable!!!!

    Not only do you have a wonderful garment that no one else has, but you saved money in the process.

    That is a striking dress. I'm wondering if you purchased the fabrics for it at a quilt shop. Even as I reached
    retirement I still made a lot of cotton dresses for work.
    (secretarial). I bought for a dress more than once at a
    quilt shop, as they had the prettiest fabrics. I thought
    about making my little great greatdaughter a few sun dresses, but I'm not sure her mama irons! So guess I won't
    make them.

    Thank you everyone for the compliments! I'll answer several questions in one post. The pattern is by Boutique Chic by Serendipity Studio. It's number 110 and called Claire Cami Dress. I did buy the fabrics at my LQS and they're all basic quilting cottons. One Moda, one Amy Butler and the other I don't remember.

    I had a lot of fun making the dress and was super pleased with how it turned out so I will definitely be making more garments soon.

    Beautiful dress Rachel! Keep sewing - I learned to sew clothes in junior high and didn't start quilting until 10 years ago! I still sew clothes but prefer, making quilts and home decor!

    You did a great job. Fits nicely also. Love your fabric choices. I sewed for myself and two daughters (eldest had only 2 boughten dresses when she left for college, one being a Prom dress) for many years, until I took up quilting, then the 4 GD's were lucky enough to get Easter dresses. Work away from home gets in the way of time. Seeing ANY sewing project in its completion is a wonderful feeling.

    Very pretty dress. Years ago I use to make clothes, not anymore quilts are so much more fun and much easier also. I also made doll clothes, all sizes.
