I found this really great jersey knit at Hobby Lobby (it's still there as far as I know). Anyway, there was an Irish band coming into town again, and I kinda have a thing for the guitarist, so I wanted to look good, y'know? So while I was watching a couple Twilight Zone episodes, I whipped this baby up. I laid a dress with a similar cut atop the fabric and snip-snipped.
It gets SO humid here in summertime; I wanted to make a dress in which I didn't have to wear a bra. Plus I LOVE plunging backs and v-cuts, so I incorporated all of that into it. I had some hot pink thread laying around from a previous (unfinished bellydancing) project, so to finish off the seams I did a decorative stitch. I used some loop braid that's probably 30 years old (I shop at antique stores a lot) as well as decorated ribbon I also got at Hobby Lobby.
I don't normally just post one project per topic, but I really dig this dress. It works every time. (Plus that band is performing nearby tonight, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed I can get a ride out there!)
Yowza! Hello ladies:
