Learning How to Sew a Dress

This is the dress I'm making for Olivia's First Communion which is January 10th. Originally it was scheduled for November 22nd, but Sophia had emergency surgery to remove her appendix. So, it was re-scheduled.

At this point, the pieces are cut and everything is pinned together in this picture. Have been working on hand-sewing on clear beads near the bottom of the dress (there are flowers and the beads are in the center).

Sophia also is making her First Communion, and has a similar dress (the beading and floral pattern is a bit different.)

I've never sewn a dress before, so it will be interesting to see if the dresses turn out. (Note in late-November: They did turn out...and the girls love them.) Now Sophia and Olivia want me to make them MORE dresses. They are convinced I can sew anything.
