(New pic added because I realized I didn't have one that really properly showed off the dress, what with all my posing.  The expression?  Yeah, I don't know either.)

I'm pretty sure I sew dresses solely for the purpose of getting to pose for pictures of them.  This was made after succeeding with this dress.  Again, no pattern was used, made it up as I went along, blah blah.  Lots better attention to detail on this one, but I ended up liking the bodice a little lower and less fitted because the fabric's so soft and it makes it very comfortable!  Got the fabric for $5 at Goodwill!  I love it, I wish I could find fabric this flexible and soft (yet the perfect weight for a dress) at Jo-Ann's.  It was really a great find.  Oh, and this zips on the side instead of in the back because I had seams on the sides.  I don't know which I prefer for practicality.  Also the pleats are sewed down close to the fold about 2" on this one, so it keeps its shape a lot better than the first one.








I tire myself out.

It actually falls perfectly when I'm standing still, but there are some awkward pooches and such in the photos because I'm moving around.  It allows for a lot of mobility; had to make use of that!

PS - Don't even try to deny the awesomeness of my moccasins.

Hah, I basically just flail while my brother snaps pictures.  And then I often fall over and end up sitting on the ground, all tired out.  Not really that much energy, just excitement!  Why not be excited?!

Thank you Smiley
