I made a dress – that I love. Completely inspired by Soulemama, I made the 100 Acts of Sewing Dress No. 1 in the exact same fabric that she chose. I even ordered it from the same store – Alewives in Maine. I loved how the fabric came wrapped and with a little note. I love that kind of customer service and know that I will be a repeat customer. I love, love, love this fabric and have my wheels spinning on what else I can make with the leftover fabric. I am even contemplating buying more of it. It’s so soft, with a great drape and the print is totally wearable. I can’t tell you the number of times I have made something only to have it look really handmade (not in the good way). This doesn’t and I have already gotten compliments on it, without someone asking me if I made it. I did not add the pockets on this dress because I felt like the front patch pockets were a little too young for me. I contemplated adding in side pockets like Amanda did but I was in a rush to get it finished for our recent trip to Pennsylvania. It’s such a comfortable dress. I have worn it in the yard, mini-golfing, to the fair and for a nine-hour car trip. More of these will be made – maybe even with side pockets. I just need to find another fabric I love so much.
