I made another dress from the pattern I designed.
 

 

 

 

 I was very busy while making this, so the tutorial is still not ready. I am SO sorry to everyone who is waiting! I hope to have one ready my the weekend Smiley
 So, comments, ciriticism? Please be brutally honest everyone!! I have been very un-satisfied with every project lately, and I need a little feedback on what I can improve  Smiley

*edit* I am so sorry for the wait for a tutorial! I finally got it done. I know it isn't all that great, but it really is the best I cna do right now  Undecided





 Also, the computer messed it up a little as far as sizing and it moved the text around. Crap.. anyway, I hope you can still read it  Roll Eyes

it's absolutely adorable!!!!!!I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! Grin you seriously designed the pattern yourself? it looks very well made. I really like the fabric, it's simple yet hip. how many yards of fabric did you use?

 Thank you dear Smiley
 I used about two yards. I could have used less but I messed up on the skirt and had to re-do it  Roll Eyes

I must admit, if I'm supposed to be brutally honest that this is perfect.  Cheesy Is the green one you made polka-dotted? I would love it even more in green!

It needs pockets, IMO. (I love the look of babydoll dresses with pockets...)
But otherwise it's great!

that's so cute. i think it could look cute too with a smaller (i.e., lower cut) top but some don't like showing much cleavage. just a suggestion for another option.

I totally agree, a low scoop neck would look really sweet with the empire line. Also like the idea of pockets. Can't wait for the tute

 Thanks for the ideas Smiley I was going to make it lower cut, but my mom wouldn't let me wear it that way  Roll Eyes

*Jumps up and down at the tut* Definitely going to need my mom's help for it, and her money for fabric *looks innocent* But that's exactly the kind of dress I'd want to wear when I feel like wearing dress o.O Thankies for the tut
