I graduated from college last Saturday (well, technically I graduated last december but the ceremony didn't take place until Saturday) and I made this dress to wear under my gown and for my grad party. The fabric is rust colored swiss dot that has silver metallic pin-striping. The pictures don't show the striping too well but the fabric is really pretty.
The pattern was Butterick 5181.
here's one of me and the boy. this one shows the striping a little better. his parents bought me the camp chair - that is why it's set up in the house - we don't use camp chairs for real furniture
thanks for looking
