An absolutely gorgeous dress and I am totally in love with that fabric, so eye catching! I could not believe that it could possibly be rated Easy but having looked at the pattern it really is easy to follow, there is nothing complicated about it at all. The first one I make will have long sleeves, because we are in winter here in South Africa, but I will be making a couple of short sleeved ones as well for summer.

I like this dress: It has sleeves and is simple, but defined with the wide belt. I probably wouldn't go with tiger stripes across my plump body, but something more than a just plain solid. A large overall print or something 60's psychedelic. Hmmmm?

Fabulous cant wait to make it ... just love the material you used !

Love the dress, fits great and can be dressed up easily with a classic jacket. My Denver Fabric Center is having a Jersey knit by the pound sale. I need Dresses.

bonito! y facil! gracias!

Do you have a cuffed shorts pattern?

You did a fantastic job on it and it makes me want to run out and buy some fabric but I'm a novice sewer - all I've tried so far is straight lines (and they aren't even straight). Do you think I could manage it?

Yes, you can do anything as long as you try. Practice sewing straight lines on paper. No thread, just the needle and machine. It is how we were taught in sewing classes years ago. Also, try putting tape on the machine and follow the tape edge so you can sew straighter. Practice makes perfect.

You might also try sewing more slowly and deliberately until you get used to your machine. You have to remember that it's not a race and take your time to enjoy yourself, and practice a lot. My grandma taught me to sew on news paper following the print, and now 20 years later, I actually enjoy the structured environment of a new pattern and sew other things besides dolls to relax from a hectic day. I will admit that when I am excited about a new pattern I can't get it done fast enough, I understand where you are coming from. :-)
