Happy Birthday to Me

In a few short days (on August 7th, to be exact) I will be turning 30,  so I decided to make myself a dress to celebrate in.  If you recall, I made a practice dress out of a sheet, which turned out pretty well, only it was a little big in places.  For this dress, I made a few adjustments including shortening it a few inches and taking it in a little at the sides and here it is:on hangerI must say that I am very pleased with it.  This is one of the first projects that I have truly taken my time with and insisted on perfection.  I guess that happens when you are working with fabric that you really love. (In this case the fabric that I really love is Anna Maria Horner’s Social Climber from her Garden Party collection.)

On my birthday, we are going out to dinner, then dancing and I think this dress will be perfect for the occasion.
