The Jamie dress is complete! I estimate that it took me about 6 hours start to finish, but another one would take maybe 3 now that I know what's going on with the pattern.
Overall, I found this pattern pretty easy to follow. I think I've always flubbed my way through sewing on a zipper, but the step-by-step photos (and the hint to use a glue stick to keep the zipper in place) made it really smooth sailing.
What a sense of accomplishment! Now, I'm off to finish my mini quilt. I'll be linking this up to the Sew Sweetness Jamie dress sew-along.
Also, a heads up--you should enter to win some of this cute Amy Butler bias tape, made by my friend Mary! Ten winners will take some home, and the details are at the link below.
