I assure you, this dress is super easy! I think it even says Easy on the pattern sleeve Smiley I'll try to get a pic of the back soon, but it essentially just looks like the front, just less rounded at the neckline. The ties are sewn into the side seams. I hope that helps!
thank you!

I really, really like this.  Any chance you would post a picture of the back?  I'd like to see the ties.  I'm interested in recreating this, although my skill level would not do it much justice.  It's just wonderful, great job.

This is gooooorgeous.  Absolutely love this fabric and the ruffles.  Amazing.  I vote no on adding more buttons.  Looks perfect the way it is, and am concerned that would overdo it.  Great job!

I absolutely LOVE this.  This is my favorite style dress.  Love the color and the cute trim and hair thingy.

How did you make the bodice part?  Is it just one piece?  Great job!

I just started sewing a few days ago.  I started with a simple dress, a few things for my baby (which turned out pretty horrible lol), then moved on to a pattern.  That turned out rather badly also.  So I decided to wing it and here is what I made.


I'm currently stationed in Iraq, and I have the smallest half of a room ever to live in.  No iron, and very limited supplies- thank jebus for being able to order stuff online. 

The bodice:  I tried sewing snap buttons on the back, but it didn't work out so I'm waiting on a zipper to come in from joanns.  I'm a little scared of the zipper, but I made sure to get a machine with a zipper foot, so my fingers are crossed.  I suppose I will have to figure out how to alter it a bit to be more snug.

The skirt:  I just took a huuuge rectangle and hand-stitched a loose running thread through it.  I had planned on using a wide zig zag stitch over it, but I ended up getting weird loops of thread on the back stitch- any ideas on what that's about?  Being impatient, I decided to pin over the running thread and sew a straight line.  It ended up a bit shorter than I needed it, and I had to pull out some and try again.

Overall, I'm quite happy!  I will wear this with a crinoline to make it flouncy.  I'd also like to add something to make it less busy- maybe a sash/belt, or some piping?  I'm scared of piping too though!

Thanks for looking  Cheesy

holy crap, that's really nice!  Totally looks professional.  I browse wedding and prom dress websites like daily (my poor husband) and this is just as nice as any of them.  You could totally sell this for big bucks.  You are good, I'm jealous.

This is crazy smart.  I wonder how you could keep the mattress from sliding.  Hmm.  Love this, great thinking.
