Lovely dress and great fabric choice!

I found the last picture to be quite surprising. I didn't realise that it came apart that much! The buttons are perfectly understandable and practical in that case. Do you find the sides of the skirt stay put? I would certainly sit down and expose enough flesh to get arrested but I'm a complete klutz.  Roll Eyes

For the most part it stayed together quite well. Only at the bar when I was shuffling and scooting around did it slip down a bit, but it just looked like a skirt with a high slit. Sexy, but not scandalous, and easy to fix.

Hello!
Ages ago I saw someone on craftster make a shirt based off this old pattern, and I loved it. I can't find it now, otherwise I'd link it, but I had to try my version.

It's got a circle skirt on the bottom, ties in the front and back, and buttons added under the arm for modesty. I looooove it! Just need to be careful when the wind blows ;P











This is what it looks like before you tied it up, when you pretend it's a cape..

Lovely! I really want an embroidery machine, even more so after I see cool stuff like this..

Thanks everyone!
I tried to match the glitter with the fabric so whichever way is facing out matches what you're wearing. Nice to see it's a detail that's picked up on!

I don't think i uploaded these here yet! Last summer I made a bunch of reversible necklaces using various paints, glitters and fabric, these are a few of them. I'm impatiently awaiting more supplies to make others now.. I also made some smaller single piece ones, but I'm having difficulty uploading photos.









Thanks for looking!

Nice fix! Also nice skates, I have the same pair (different wheels/toe stops though) Smiley

adjustments you could make are taking away that little extra space in the back (vertically) and adding some width in the front. Perhaps along with shortening the back bodice, also take a little (vertically) from the front.
But I'm talking about tiny adjustments and the dress already looks great just as it is.

Good ideas! I probably won't do anything to this dress (what's done is done!) but I'll keep it in mind next time I use the pattern Smiley

It's beautiful. Making things with your own pattern is very satisfying, and a bit nerve wracking. Congrats on a wonderful dress. I'm obsessed with sundresses right now, and I've pinned yours as a neckline reference for when I get around to making a few of my own.
Sundresses are an addiction! I just can't stop.

Thanks for getting back to me! I appreciate it, I'll definitely do a couple stitches in the corners if it seems too droopy.

I just finished this dress and wanted to share it with you. CCW! It's my own pattern but I never made it with non stretch fabric before so there's not really enough room in the bust, makes me look a bit flat but that's not the end of the world.
You wouldn't believe how many times I ironed this dress and it's still super wrinkly..







Thanks for looking!
