1st sewing project

I shouldn't show this because it's butt-ugly* (me and the dress) but I found a picture** of my 1st sewing project from a pattern! It's from July 1984 (if I did my calculations right, I was 12)! A female friend of my father's helped me make it. The dress had a beach scene border all around the bottom and the back of the dress had a cut out about where your bra strap would be. It's awful looking and I can see in the photo the facings were coming out around the neck line but I'm proud of myself anyway:)
*I went through some serious FUGLY stages.
**That's my dog Radar.

I'm not even going to talk about my fugly stages... Let's just say coke bottle glasses and braces. And my first sewing project I didn't use a pattern (Yeah, I haven't really changed in all these years...) so your beach dress totally smokes my cami shirt!
