I would also like to know whether you came up with the design or not, because frankly, I love it and think you did pretty fantastically...especially considering you'd never done a zipper before!  I'm still too timid to try one, haha.  I love the ruffle, too, by the way.  I really like the peach color, and I agree that the apple buttons are adorable, however, I'm not sure they go great together.  Still, maybe they do and in any case it's still a fabulous dress.

yes, i came up with the design. i was so surprised the zipper thing turned out the way it did. i own this really cute housewife dress with a zipper down the side, and i studied it to death, trying to figure out what they did to sew on the zipper. i basically took the edge of the fabric and one side of the zipper, and sewed it together so it was somewhat folded under the fabric. it was still loose so i decided to stitch on the outside and just made sure to follow a straight line, to make it look as neat as possible. it's kind of hard for me to explain but i could always draw a diagram if you like!

i know the buttons don't really go with the dress, but i was kind of going with a retro vibe and it sorta reminds me of a 60's/70's kitchen and how wallpapers, furniture and things didn't really mix well. Cheesy

So, is this your own design?

...yes it is! it's the 4th dress i've designed and the one i like the most. i'm getting a little better each time which i guess it what happens when you practice. everyone seems to like this one a lot..

You certainly have a knack for designing a cute dress. Please let us know when you make your next one!  Wink
