I am just going to apologize about the hair ahead of time...lol
She loves her dress! Me, not so much! Although I did learn that my Janome and buttonholes do not mix, at least I don't care for making buttonholes! I had to do that for the collar and it has buttons on the back also. I will be looking for patterns that do not require the use of buttons in the future...lol
I did have to take the dress in a lot, when I first fit her the dress looked more like a parachute than a dress.
Overall she likes it, I will be practicing on more dresses (ones that she can actually wear in public...lol) in the future.
Now, I am going to get back to sewing my blocks for the Star Bright quilt.
