The Rewards!!!

The reward of my effort is the finished product of a new dress to add to my wardrobe!
I am very satisfied with the way that this dress has turned out. This was a brand new pattern that I had never made before, but I am glad that it was a success!
It is very cool and breezy to wear, a very fun dress for the warm area we live in! :-)

Welcome to our site, Erica.
That's right, this is definitely not New England. We live in deep, deep south Texas and it sure is hot and humid!

Kyla, Kelly used Simplicity #2882.
She raised the neckline 2 inches which was very easy to do. If any of you don't know how, we'd be very happy to show you.

Malia, Thank you for the encouragement. You are a joy and encouragement to us also.

How lovely! I want to make one!
What kind of fabric did you use?

Chloe said...

The dress and aprons are so pretty! I enjoyed all the pictures! Thanks for sharing! :)

God Bless!

Kelly said...

Thank you very much!
Yes, I think you should make one!
I used a linen imitation/look alike fabric. It is actually rayon/polyester, but doesn't wrinkle as bad as linen does. Hope you have fun with this possible project!!!

What a pretty dress, Kelly! It turned out great. I would love for you to show me how to raise the neckline. I'm always looking for sewing tips and ideas! :)

Your dress is stunning, Kelly! I agree, you are on your way to becoming like your mother (an experienced seamstress) =D! You and your sister's are four amazing girls! Blessings to you all!

In Christ's Love,
