Sewing Projects-One Hour Dress

So I have been on a sewing kick lately. I was introduced to a blog recently that had a list of free online patterns and I found a few I wanted to try out. I decided to start with this One Hour Dress pattern. It was really neat to try and I learned a lot by experimenting. This was my first time to sew with knit fabric. And as a result I definitely know why I always avoided knits. It definitely took me more than one hour to make it. Even a few of the commenters said it took them about two hours. I even made the cheetah print belt to go with it. I have been wanting a cheetah print belt for a while to jazz up simple dresses but couldn't find one at all. So I decided to make it. Of course, as always, I used coupons from Jo-Ann's to purchase the fabric for the dress and belt. I love coupons.

I also created a simple craft this week called a t-shirt necklace. A friend told me about it and I was intrigued enough to Google it and try it. It was a lot of fun, super easy to make and looked really cool with the outfit I wore. I am hoping to start another dress this week to go along with a dress I made last week and I'll blog about it when I'm done. I have a few other sewing projects lined up which should keep me busy for a while.
