Look what I did!

A year or so ago, I got to help my neighbor do some minor sewing for a local music theater company.  It was really fun and it turns out they kept my name and number because I got a call last week asking if I would be willing to help sew for the Music Man.  I said yes! and just finished up this dress:

I'm very proud of myself because I only had a pattern to follow for about half of the dress.  The other half was the lady who designed it telling me she wanted it "like this".  Tremendously helpful, but I think it turned out really well.

Here's the back; you can't see it because of her pretty hair, but the zipper is fabulous!

I put in this picture to prove that the girl I made the dress for actually does like it!

In fact, she's going to be directing a production of Into the Woods in the fall (just a community group, I think) and she asked me to help sew for that show.  I'm super excited!  I love sewing and it thrills me when other people think I do a good job!  I'm also very excited and a little surprised to realize how much progress I've made in the last two years.  I knew how to do everything on this dress and it turned out exactly the way I expected it to.  I'm a seamstress, who knew?

It looks beautiful! Well, the sewing that is. I'm not a big fan of the colors & everything but since you just were handed the cut out material & told to sew... YOU did a beautiful job!

And yes, I knew you could sew. That's why we were going to have you sew the princess' baptism dress. We're just too far apart distance wise for it to have been practical. Plus I belong to procrastinators annon so...

I am so proud of you and not a bit surprised that you could make something as lovely as this. Thank you for sharing.
