Pin-Up Style Dress

I would like to kick-off my new blog with a post about one of my favorite projects that I have completed to date, a pin-up style dress. This dress took a lot of time to create since I was only using a pattern for the basic form of the dress and I had to fudge all the other little details myself. This is also only the second dress I have ever sewn in my life, but I think it went pretty well and I really enjoy wearing it. So without further ado, pictures!

The completed dress. Probably could have used some ironing, but oh well.
