They're both fairly simple, nice stretchy fabric that can be pulled on without zipping.  And they'd also both look better on someone with some more boobage than I have, but that's not too hard to find.  Anyway, here's the stripey one:


(bad picture)


(I have no idea why I'm doing the robot)

And this is the ribbon one:


(front - check out the SOCKS!)


(yay!  It's the back!)


(teddy bear dissed my moms here, so I had to teach him what was what)

The belt and halter for the ribbon one were pretty easy - I just grabbed a few different shades, tied them together, and fiddled around trying to braid them until I managed to make it work.  These were also my first two attempts at blindstitching hems, and I think they came out all right.  Whatcha think?

LOVE the stripey one. I really need to try a stretchy dress. I hate zippers, meh! It looks just great on you, boobage or no.  And the robot picture actually made me chuckle out loud. hee!  Cheesy

The stripey one is way fantastic!

How did you sew the cords for the straps and the belt-like thing?  I can never get them to come out that skinny!

Clever use of the striping fabric on the first one!!  Nice that you do not need any zipper or anything!

You look terrific in both, very flattering and love that you do not need to wear a bra and still look fab!! (see there are advantage to your size!!?)

PS the red sock looks divine! ha ha

The fit is very flattering, and they both look great! I really like the way you did the stripes on the top one, especially the criss cross waist.

Thanks!  The straps were actually meant to be much wider, but I measured them a bit funny.  I just folded them in half, right sides together, sewed them with a tightish zig zag, then stuck a safety pin on the end and used it to help me guide the straps right side out. 

You can't see it, but the straps actually attach on the back at the top, and then wrap around to the front to do the criss cross.  It can go around the back or around the front, as you like it.

I love the stripey one, too, but it's the striped flounce, more than anything else, that really appeals to me....so cute and kicky!
