Inspired by the amazing creations I've seen on craftster and the lack of dresses that fit my shape, I decided to make something too....
trying to show the details of the bodice without much success:
and a detail of the back:
I didn't use a pattern, I just winged it. The paisley material was something I found on the side of the road, maybe it was a tablecloth. The green is an old t-shirt and the brown I bought at Joann's. I might add a few details like a paisley hem on the skirt, i dunno. Much of the bodice is handsewn because I'd just had surgery on my foot and couldn't work the pedal on my sewing machine. The surgery also explains the stork pose; I'm not supposed to put weight on my foot (crutches were cropped out of the photo).
