My First Dress!

Today I FINALLY got around to making this border fabric sundress by lilblueboo using Amy Butler fabric. It looks so cute on Miss Mia!
I forgot to add an extra 1-2 inches on the bust like the tutorial said for non-stretchy fabric so it was too small...UGGG!
Not to worry though, my friend Amy helped me improvise by showing me how to add a zipper and hooks :)
