Pattern # 9340


My friend, MaryElla, gave me this vintage Marian Martin pattern.  It's complete with all the pieces, directions, and even the embroidery transfers : )  I'm so excited to try it!  I want to find just the right fabric....

I love your blog and all of your dresses so much! Do you have any advice for a novice dressmaker?

I think the hardest first step is finding your size/shape. Pick a dress pattern, measure yourself, pick some cheap fabric and just start. There's plenty of how-to sites for sewing tips....basically you just have to try something and learn from doing. Don't be afraid to mess up, just have a ripper ready - I use mine ALL the time ; )

Thank you! My first dress was a disaster. . . wrong size and felt terrible on me. Keep up the great work
