    I've wanted for quite some time to try my hand at garment making. I admire all the ladies that sew beautiful clothing with what seems like very little effort. This dress came together fairly easily so it was a good confidence builder for me to continue on with garments. It's funny but I think out of all the quilts I've made over the last couple of years, I'm more proud of this dress than any of the quilts. :P

    Very nice! I have not made any clothing for awhile, but it is just as amazing to have it come out right as it is to see a quilt block come together. Looks great -- I wish it were warm enough here for no sleeves and bare feet!

    Beautiful work!

    That's great that you enjoy sewing and quilting. Once I learned to quilt, I gave up the sewing..it no longer held my interest.

    Love the colors - when my kids were small I made their clothes and mine. Need to start sewing for me again.

    Love it....very nice. I have been thinking of also sewing a few dresses. I hate the styles in the stores and the quality is so cheap. I really would love to take sewing lessons. Its really sad that there are not many places that offer lessons.

    It looks very pretty on you. The colors, prints, and pattern are young and modern. Sometimes it's just good to switch up your projects. I always made garmets when I was younger, but now I have more fit problems, so I do quilts. Maybe when I have a grandaughter I will go back to making her some cute outfits.
