* EDITED to include actual photos sorry for the best of puns - I work at Baskin Robbins, so just thought I'd have a little shout out to my ice cream flavors  Cheesy


-none, I traced a well-fitting shirt for the top and then altered it a gazillion, the skirt is a variation of the circle skirt, but it is slimmer at the hips, and then flares out.

- the creamish fabric is some sort of non-cotton polyester (?) from the $1 table at Walmart. It stretches on the bias, but is a woven.
- the black fabric is a remnant from Walmart, feels like crepe, but I don't know what it is. No stretch, but drapes well.

-6 plastic pearl buttons (the kind with the pre-attached loop)
-black stretch cord for "buttonholes"
-black scalloped lace
-black bias tape

And 'cus no respectable granny would want the world to see her Depends,  Cheesy I also made a slip to go under the dress out of some muslin.


the back's my favorite part! the black sash is part of the dress in front, but it ties to make a bow in the back

oh my... that's a scary picture.  Cheesy
