It's a finished object post! Can you believe it? Today, I present to you, "The Oatmeal Dress". I have had this dress cut out for about three months, but just recently got around to stitching it up. In hindsight, I should have sewn this up sooner as I am in love with it. Thankfully, this project went together without extreme hassle. I did sew one of the skirt pieces on backwards, which I was able to easily fix after a few quality moments with my seam ripper.
I pulled out all the stops for this dress. I finished every single seam, hand sewed the facing instead of my usual stitch in the ditch method, used a vintage metal zipper, and applied hem tape. This dress is the creme de la oatmeal of dresses!
