Rachel and I made a dress! We were trying out her sewing machine to see if it was worth keeping (ended up selling it on KSL in about 1/2 an hour) and also teaching Rachel how to sew. We used the Coffee Date Dress pattern from BurdaStyle. The instructions on BurdaStyle are not working, but available on the designer's website. We left out the ruffle, and added a lining. Adding the lining made the whole project a big pain, but our [free] fabric required it. Not bad for the price of a zipper!
