This is my 'I never done none of this stuff before' entry
Okay, here we go, stuff I never did before:
Cut a pattern
making bias tape
sewing said bias tape around armholes (I used a brilliant tutorial from Amy Karol at Angry Chicken)
sewed in a zipper
Now, admittedly, the fit is not great, and that neckline kind of makes me look neckless. And the dress is NOT finished.
BUT I MADE IT!!!! I MADE IT ALL BY MYSELF!!!!!!!
PLEASE IGNORE MY FAT ARMS AND ARMPITS!!!!!
