Sorry for the single picture, this is made out of one yard of a paisley fabric I couldn't resist, and black suiting.

It's actually one of the easiest things I've ever sewed and I love it!
It's short enough that I have to wear it with tights for a mod look and I can also wear it as a shirt over a pair of skinny jeans as well. The black band in the front ties in the back for some interesting detail

I've been really into Twiggy lately, can you tell?


TUTORIAL:

Sorry for the all around...badness

Also. MAKE SURE THE FABRIC IS STRETCHY, or be brave

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

Cuteness. I've seen so many dresses similar to this. I really need to catch up on what's "cool".

Love the fabric. Looks great with the leggings.

Did you make the pattern?
No I didn't, I actually created my own pattern. The fabric was so streatchy and easy to work with that it left alot of room for errors!

Thanks to everyone for the happy birthday wishes, I had a great time
