A New Dress

It's the end of the school year and our daughter is graduating from middle school. She asked me to make a dress for her so after a couple of days it's done. It normally doesn't take me long to make clothing but lately I get tired easily so I had to cut one day and sew the next. Now we'll have to go shopping to buy a little cropped type of sweater to go over it. She will be wearing it for the graduation then the dinner cruise in the evening. Can't wait for school to be out so I can get some much needed rest.


This is a close-up of the top. It has a bit of gathering in the center.
