So, when I finally decided I will learn how to sew, I cannot stop wishing that one day I will be able create a dress for me and for the Little Spanish Pinay. Honestly? I haven't imagined any project for the hubby... men's clothes are boring, aren't they? LOL
Anyways, in search of a very, very simple pattern for making a simple dress, I came upon this from Pinterest. I so love the idea because it does look very simple to make. I've been checking for fabric and a top I can use for this small project and finally about a week ago, I found some nice materials to play with. They are not the best material for this project but at least, if I make a mess out of it, it's also ok to give up on these materials and charge everything to experience :-D
I am not going to put a how to on this one because the very creative Leana has done a very, very nice step by step comlete with picture how to on her blog. So if anyone would like to try it too, just head over to her blog and you'll also find a lot of interesting projects and ideas there :)
This blog entry of mine is to just boast the almost successful dress I did! It still has a lot to improve on especially on the part that is not seen by the naked eye but equally important to polish. I'm a newbie so I get extremely proud with even just a little success... making baby steps, ya know.
Ok, so here are some photos... sorry for the crappy quality... I am just using my phone, making really, really quick photo and then no time for editing coz y'all? I am an extremly unorganized busy mama!
So here is the dress... click on the picture to make it bigger, please.
and here's how it looks like paired with a knit jacket and some kick-ass boots.... let's not mind the mess from the background, yes?

I really planned on making a maxi dress... I dream of having a maxi dress but haven't found the right fit for my height and body and for my budget. So when I saw this simple project, I thought this is my salvation. I ended up making this as a short dress because the fabric I chose for the skirt part is not soft and flowy (I think that's a made up word). So I had to stitch it up and make it into a short bubble skirt instead... worked quite good.
And calling Ms. Kim.... no pressure but I am excited to see yours!
