MY FIRST PROJECT:
Dress will be the one with ribbons. Dress is pink cotton with a pink ribbon. I am making this as it will still look modern and not too out of place. A "first start".
This dress is a black with small pink flowers. It is very slippery, will hang nice, but a bugger to sew. Silly me... Complicated pattern and i choose difficult fabric too... "baste...baste...baste..."
Here are the fabrics underneath their respective patterns.

I'm sure that as i go along i will get more authentic and know what will look good and not. For the moment these are my first projects. Will see how we go.
