Polka Dot Dress

I finally got up and went to the sewing room this evening. It has been a long time coming. Also, I am about to receive a glorious gift from my wonderful neighbor. I meant to walk over and pick the 1961 sewing machine yesterday, but alas house duties called. I have almost completed all of my tasks. Accouting class begins tomorrow. I am ready.

Anyhow - I finished my first knit dress! I went over all the serged seams, yet again!

There was quite a bit to change from the original pattern:
The side seams,
The armholes,
The draping in the front, and finally,
The midsection seams.

The project took approximately 25 minutes total! I wonder which knit I will choose to work with next? I know I want to try a different pattern, there were just too many complications and readjustments with this one.

Love the dress! I like the fabric you selected for that style dress... I can see it w/red leather gloves and a pill box hat and red lipstick.. and also it would be 1940 :) I love it.. a very timeless look..
