Our first project is from a book full of wonderful ideas (with full size patterns) called Sew Serendipity by Kay Whitt. You can find out more about the book and order it from Carolina's booklist on her blog. We are going to try the tunic dress you see here.
I love the border print the model is wearing, but since I have never sewn clothing before, I decided to choose a simpler print that I wouldn't have to match up. I'm very nervous because I've never sewn a zipper before, but it should be lots of fun too! I'm really looking forward to sharing triumphs and probably tears as Carolina and I work our way through this. I need to thank my lovely and agile photo assistant Emily (my soon to be 11 year old daughter) who was willing to climb a drippy wet tree in exchange for a cheese omelet.
