Selfish sewing week


I’ve been planning to make this dress for 10 months… The perfect project for selfish sewing week! Still need to hem the bottom, add cuffs to the sleeves (which I think I may shorten as well), face the neckline, put in the zipper and sew up the rest of the back seam. I’m debating adding a bow to the front (it’s an option in the pattern). Really hoping to be able to finish this dress this week, so I can start on my daughter’s Halloween costume.

This is based on the same pattern as my 80s dress, but I added sleeves (modified an existing sleeve block), and it’s sewn from the leftover fabric from last year’s Christmas outfits.
