1 down, 3 to go...

Here is the first dress that I worked on.  This pattern wasn't too challenging except for the actual tulips.  I had to take out several of them and re-work them to get them to look right.  But overall, it went fairly quickly.  I started this project last Monday and finished it by Friday night.  I worked on it for a few hours in the afternoon and evenings each day.  I'd say it took about 8-10 hours total.  Not sure if that is good or not, but if I continue with the rest of my projects at the same rate, I will be able to finish them all before the baby is born, which is my goal.  I am currently working on a pale blue dress for Anna Ruth, but it will be more elegant.  Check back in for more progress updates!
