homecoming is approaching, and quite frankly, I need a dress. I've searched all over, but can't find one in the style I've envisioned.....so, being a craftster, I plan on making it instead (even though I've never sewn a dress before....hah!). but I can't find any patterns similar to this stupid dress either! here's a picture I've just whipped up in paint to show you what I mean (the original drawing is, in fact, on paper...and our scanner is, in fact, broken at the moment.)
basically this in all black. if anyone wants to help me search for a pattern that would make a dress very close to this (without being too hard, because I'VE NEVER SEWN A DRESS BEFOOOOOOORE!!!), I'd be very thankful. alls I've got so far is a circle skirt+ tank top like...thing....my boobs aren't too big, so I was hoping I'd be able to just use a flat piece of fabric in front (xD).....
edit: AHAHA! I remember posting here (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=50712.0;topicseen
) a while back....who thinks I'd be able to pull this off? (the straps need only be straight strips of fabric to criss-cross in the back, right?)
