That is stunning.  I honestly stared at it for about 20 minutes just trying to figure out how you got the bust to do that beautiful twisty-thing that it does.

late?  yes.  but still pretty!

I used a vintage pattern as inspiration, but essentially drafted it all on my own.  There are two layers, the top is a really cool textured leafy-looking fabric, and the bottom is a lace that peeps through.  Now for pictures!




and this shot, as unflattering as it may be, shows the really amazing texture of the top fabric. 


I was pretty excited.

And as a side-note, it has in-seam pockets!  I didn't even need a purse!

I love how the lining of the pockets is a different fabric.  Very cool.

how pretty!  and as an amusing side note, the dress you used for inspiration is the exact one my best friend wore to her junior prom.  anyway, great job, I myself have never been very good at gathering/pleating lace like you did, so kudos!

you take my breath away.  it's all so cute and so sassy and I just want to own and wear them all.  My favorite is the MMD dress, worn by Camille, I believe.

a belt with pockets?  Whaaaa?  I simply must copy!

a damask is just a patterned weave of any type of fiber -- silk, linen, cotton, etc.  I looked it up and apparently it's used most commonly in tablecloths and such, but I definitely found my fabric in the special occasion/fashion section at Hancock . . . so I guess it's very versatile.

Thanks for all the positive feedback, guys.  The pattern I used is Very Easy Vogue, # V8240, here's a link:

As you can see I made view A . . . but I'd love to give B a try (it can't be that much harder) if I ever have somewhere really fancy schmancy to go.

Thanks guys!  The fabric is a damask (pretty easy to work with, but it unravels so easily, so you have to be gentle when cutting and pinning), and I found it at Hancock Fabrics, and I know for a fact they have it in all sorts of colors -- blue, purple, I think maybe even a beige, etc.

You are so adorable it's ridiculous.  And I love the top, the fabric reminds me of this old wallpaper my mom used to use (that's a very good thing, I promise.)
