hi. i'm new to posting on this message board but have lurked here and there for the past while, and finally decided to make an appearance and show some of my work!

i thought i would share this peach dress i just made a couple days ago, i tried to go with a retro feel, and it's really only my 3rd/4th dress i've ever made but the one i'm most satisfied with.

i convinced my lovely friend rhiannon to come over last week to model it for me.

well, here goes...

this is the front of the dress, with a view of the pocket


another view of the front


a view of the back (my first time sewing on a zipper!!)


and a close up of the fabric i used, and the cutest apple buttons


thanks for looking. constructive criticism always appreciated.

That's gorgeous, and looks like it would easily sell at least $100 at a good boutique! Well, i would definitely buy it... great job!

Great dress! Good job on the zipper too....if you want the back to be even better I would suggest putting a hook and eye on the top where the zipper stops. That just an idea though....
