Blue dress, again



I had enough of the blue cotton fabric to make a second dress. But this time I carefully followed along with an invisible zipper tutorial to make sure I was doing it right! The extra time and effort paid off, and I have a much more professional looking dress this time around. Next time I'm going to work on adding even more length to the bodice. The 5/8" extra I added this time was definitely not enough.

The dress looks lovely! Could I ask which invisible zipper tutorial you followed? Usually by the time I get to the zipper, I just want to get my project done, but I know that careful work is essential to a professional-looking garment.
