WIP Wednesday: Fashion Star Dress

One of my goals for the year was to sew myself a garment. So I’ve decided to take the plunge and I’m going to sew up a dress!

Materials for dress

The dress is from McCall’s new Fashion Star line and it claims to be an “easy” pattern. We’ll see if it’s true! To be extra careful, I bought muslin to make a practice dress. The real dress will be made from the red Kona fabric on the bottom.

Since this is my first real garment, I am praying to Saint Martha to help me and guide me, in this my hour of crafty need. Or something.
