so using Lamby's tutorial I made this-


(awful picture- but currently the only one I have)
I'm semi happy with it- but it really seems way too............. plaid
I love plaid, but I really feel like i need to add something to the dress to break up the plaidness
it may be just me but i feel like it would go well with a cowboy hat and boots, but unfortunately that is definitely NOT my style
other than that its uber comfortable and cool-- i'm more than happy to wear it at home-

heres a picture of it with a cardigan- i like it with the cardigan- but thats really not practical in the middle of summer-


(yup- myspace angles at work)

 any suggestions on changes are very very welcome

thanks for looking Grin

Oh wow, that turned out great.  I'd wear it anywhere. Don't change the dress.  Just keep whatever shoes or jewelry you wear with it kind of plain.

First off - I love it!!  And by looking at BOTH your pictures, I can tell that the colors, etc. really flatter you.  You're a very pretty young woman.

In the first picture, I can see how you might feel it needs a change.  I have dresses like that too - where it's almost too much DRESS (not necessarily too much plaid)!  How does it look with some of those chunkier-style shoes?  Do you have anything like that?  I'm thinking like some black wedge-like sandal, mary-jane or loafer. 

Also, have you tried any sort of belt or sash??  Or even some long necklace/chain/beads-type thing - that's really in style right now.

I do think it's beautiful, though.  And you do look lovely in it!!

Plaid is cool and that dress looks really comfy maybe since you think you have to much plaid you should sew on some random zippers and pockets made from a soid color or add a belt to play down the plaid.

thank you, i wore it the other day, and finally decided i liked it (the ribbon helped)- here's a picture -

not an exceptional picture (oh well)

it's uber-comfy, and it'll be really good for the fall when i can wear a wool cardigan without dying

oh and here's monty-

he's very disappointed that i'm taking pictures of myself instead of feeding him Smiley

I love it--and I love plaid, so I'd totally rock this dress.   Cheesy
