I did it!

I finally completed both dresses I have been working on for my girls. The first, a McCalls pattern, was meant to be done last spring but I never got it done. Now that I am in a sewing class once a week, I was able to finish it. Here is front and back views. Back has ribbon closure. I don't recall what the material is called but it came from Joann Fabric.

I also completed this little dress for my two year old. She was so happy to see it she wanted to wear it immediately. This is a pattern from Ottobre Designs issue 4/2006, pattern 10. It was a bit challenging for a beginner like me but I like how it turned out. It still needs the butter yellow velvet ribbon at the empire waist. That material is Robert Kauffman's Cool Cords.
