The dress is done!!

And heeeerrreee is my dress! The out side may look good... But on the inside, all the flaws are noticeable. Hehe, well at least it's the inside. :) I added a belt to the dress because it was kind of a simple dress so I wanted to add some details. And I think I totally failed at the zipper part because I accidently bought one that was 24 inches long.. so I had to cut and sew the bottom of it. So hopefully the zipper stays like this!

More tips on designing

I will be giving you more tips today because  I didn't establish most of the tips I had in my mind the last time!
-Find a mentor (someone who can help you)
-Be sure to remove any problems before adding details
-Dresses are the easiest type of clothing to design!!
-Don't worry to much about messing up! just know that you are not professional, every body makes mistakes!
-Look for details that will make the dress look better. But don't go over board!
I just want to say thank you to everyone who viewed, and is still viewing my blog. This was a great experience! :) Can't wait to see the final product!!

What Im doing now

Right now I am searching for the right details to put on the dress. If you can, please comment below ideas of what I should put on the dress.... because right now, its plain. Right now the dress just has a chevron design on it. I designed a pretty simple dress because I have never designed anything before, but it turned out really nice. Once I am totally done, I might upload a picture of what it looks like!
