Flamingo Dress is Completed!
I finished my dress! Despite the killing heat, I managed to make a awesome dress out of awesome fabric with flamingo prints :)
The real awesomeness of this dress is that it was quite easy to sew and looks perfect when finished. Although it was a moderately easy pattern, the dress looks really elegant when finished. I mean, as elegant as any dress covered up with flamingos would look :P
Watch and Learn Grasshopper - How to Make Bound Buttonholes

In here, I learned quite a nice way for making buttonholes. After practicing this method couple of times, I started using it not only as a buttonhole, but also on inseam pockets for pants, dresses, coats etc. If you’d like to learn how to do it properly, you may take a look at Tasia’s tutorial:
