This is my tree warrior dress. It has a cut out triangle boob hole, a cutout back with strap details, and pockets that hold wine bottles! It took so long to insert the zipper and place all the straps correctly without a dressform but the time and all the pin injuries I sustained were worth it.
The reason I need to have large, wine bottle sized pockets is that I regularly have tree picnics. Picnics in trees. I have started yarnbombing some trees in my city to hopefully encourage other people to do it too! I love trees!
I've made two other dresses of the same design, with the triangle between the breasts, but filled in for more casual wear. I've only worn the tree warrior dress once, to a dress up party, but I wear this orangey/greeny one a lot. I like that I don't need to wear a bra with them. The design was inspired by a dress that xjoyfulsongx made: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=313662.msg3607565#msg3607565
I also made a vintage inspired swimsuit with the same bodice.
This dress has bananas and watermelons printed on it and was made from an old skirt. I love the fabric!
I hope you like my dresses, and that I've encouraged you to climb a tree and maybe even take some food up with you!!! For some photos of some tree picnics I've had, including the baguette holder and goon (cask wine) holder I made, visit my blog: www.cervixosaurus.c om
