I DID IT!!!!! I finished my very first real live dress. The design is McCalls's M5925 (without Adding 'McCall's to the M5925, Google gives you strange things,seriously try it), which I bought at one of JoAnn's $.99 sales, and fell into obsession with immediately - moving it to the top of my sewing chart.

I used the arms from A and the body from C, though I think I'll go for a straight B or D in a plain flannel or supersoft cotton next time, like broadcloth, rather than the for-quilts cotton I used this time. But I do love the pattern and colors,and I'm sure it will soften up with a few more washes.
PLUS, I really learned how to sew long stitches and make ruffles, not to mention matching nap. The plaid on both designs was pretty easy, as it was alike both upside down and right side up AND left to right. But back to those ruffles...

AND IN CONCLUSION
|YAY IT'S DONE|
