    Cute dress. Funny, out of all the quilters I know, they started out making clothes and switched to quilting. You started out quilting and learned clothes sewing. Atleast you didn't have to learn to go from a HUGE 5/8" seam to a LITTLE BITTY 1/4" seam. LOL!

    You should be proud as you did a great job for a first time try. I have sewn clothes most of my life, yes it's a whole different ball game from sewing quilts but as I can see, you are off to a great start so keep going. You will love the added experience.

    The more you learn to sew the better. Lovely dress and I like the combination of fabrics.

    Speaking of warm it has been 95 here for the last three days, and it is still March - don't even want to think about what the summer temp. will be, because I know it will be H O T.

    Cute dress, now you can start a new summer wardrobe. Oh what an excuse to go fab. shopping. lol.

    Great job! I love your dress! I used to make most of my clothes and my kids clothes before I started quilting. Now, when I try to sew a 5/8 inch seam, I have a hard time with it because I'm used to 1/4 inch.
