Further proof that bluecat shouldn't go wandering in the Walmart craft department alone at 11:30 at night...
so i found the pattern, New Look 6557, and figured i'd get around to making it someday. then inspiration struck me passing the bedding. picked up a twin sized-flat sheet, turned around, and picked up some bias tape, thread, and a zipper back in crafts. took a few days (i work second shift and my neighbors get cranky when i drag out the sewing machine at 1 AM) but i'm happy with it. will be wearing to a wedding this weekend.
Full dress (with Mom in the upper left corner)
i don't recommend playing with zippers at 3 AM. i had to re-install it about 3 times.Edit: because I can't spell and there's no such thing as a cfart department at walmart
