Trial Run #1: Tie-Shoulder Dress

I have been drafting up a few things this week after work and wanted to share with you all what has been on the sewing table. The other night I decided to draft a simple little tie-shoulder gathered dress. It went a lot smoother than I thought it would have gone.

I used some random vintage sheet scraps that were around not being used or had stains on them. Sheets make for pretty good muslins if you want to see how a pattern would look with, well, a pattern.

There aren't too many things that I have to tweak. I'm glad about that, but I do need to make shorter, wider ties and a lower neckline.

Thanks for stopping by!!
