First time ever - an entire dress sewn by hand! No sewing machine!

Good evening dear friends! It is getting late and I'm getting pretty sleepy, so I'll make this a short entry.

For the last two weeks or so I've sewn more by hand than I've ever done before; for the first time making an entire garment by hand! No sewing machine, not even a little! And here is the result: A short dress in 100% wool, by my own pattern.

As you can see, there is a decorative v-shape both in the front and in the back of the collar. The three buttons on the chest were also made by me, using the same technique that I use while doing medieval cloth buttons.

So there you have it, my first dress sewn all by hand! And I enjoyed it, yay!

(The grey blouse beneath the dress is the one I made a couple of months ago, shown here...)
