1st Dress for Carly

For the first time in, well a very long time, I decided to sew and finish a project. I give you (drumroll please) ... Carly's 4th of July dress with matching flower/bow.
I had to get a lot of help from my mom and then at the end, I just wanted to complete it and sorta did what I wanted to do on the bottom of the dress but it works! The pattern was from New Look which I've heard is one of the worst to work with!!! So great one to pick out for my first project to work on! I love how it turned out. I added the flower on her dress. I also made her flower on her hairband. It's not the best thing ever but it does the job. This may inspire me to work on more dresses for her!
(Okay, I know the one on the left is almost exactly like the one on top but I had to pick from like 8 pictures and they were all too cute! So I had to at least have 2 of the pictures in there.)
She was the perfect model and didn't even need any begging or bribery during our little photo shoot! Plus it helps that we bought an awesome camera. Our pictures now look more amazing without even trying!
Ah, she's adorable!

Bravo, Tiffany! Way to finish a project! I have several that are partially done. Carly looks so cute in her 4th of July dress. Thanks for the inspiration to finish at least one of my projects this year.
