i knew i had to make xxboheme's dress when i saw it. so i went out shopping for stretchy fabric (to avoid zippers and buttons!!) and i found this lovely crab fabric. the fabric cutting lady laughed at my choice of fabric. she said nobody had bought that fabric for months. and then she giggled. i did not appreciate it.

and here is the dress:
sorry, for some reason the pictures are all way too big. and i don't know how to fix it. comments and criticism and suggestion appreciated!!!!

I have that same fabric in a cotton ( not stretchy at all) I only have a fat quarter of it and have no idea what to make with it.  I love it so much. Every time I see it, I hear the little elves from that stupid elf bowling game saying "Hey, I've got crabs.... hahahaha". I love it!

Anyway, enough about me....

That dress is excellent. I wish I could see a pic of it with out the jacket on though, to see the top

i got the fabric at joanne's on clearance, tucked away in a dusty corner. i rescued the crabs, and now they're smiling again. here's the picture of the top, after i fixed the straps. please excuse the dirty mirror. i need to do some cleaning. hehe.

thanks for all the comments, you guys. i was unsure about the fabric after the lady made that comment, but after i made the dress/really long shirt, i really really liked it. i have enough fabric to make another dress, so i think i'm going to try a different pattern.
