thank you so much everyone!

aww and you have matching nails too! very cute!

hehe. yes. my boyfriend has been painting his nails black for about two years now. i've seen him without them once. so to surprise him for formal, i painted mine black, too!!

this is completely irrelevant...but i love your shoes.

thanks! i got them at kohls...they are by candie's, and i believe they are still on the website. they come in red, too! i also have a pair that are similar, and in polka dot print...how perfect would have have been? except the heels on them are about 4 1/2 inches, and as you can tell...my 2 1/2 inch heels were pushing it as my boyfriend is only about three inches taller than me...

Great job with the fitting! It came out perfect, and I'm saying it again - that dress is really pretty... and your handbag matches! Cheesy

As soon as I saw that pattern in the catalogue I just had to buy it, but I haven't gotten around to testing it out yet. I think you've inspired me to run to the fabric store, that dress looks perfect. And I love the polkadots Cheesy

^ for some reason i look huge in this picture. oh well.

This too is completely irrelevant: you have the same shape I did when I was younger, i.e. like a playing card (broad from the front, non-existent from the side).  LOL!  I have a bunch of pictures like that, and whenever I pull them out I feel like I have to explain to people that, "I wasn't that big, really!"   Grin

thanks! i know, i was searching randomly through a crafting website and found this pattern. it's adorable! and the great thing is that there's so many variations you can make on it, and depending on what fabric you choose, you can either dress it up or play it down casual! i plan to make some more of these in some cute printed fabric for summer dresses!

That is sooo cute! I just saw a dress like that in a catalouge - black and white polka dot strapless with tulle but they had white tulle and a white ribbon with a bow around the waist - for $100 - and I really loved it but didnt want to spend the money buttt youve inspired me! Do they sell that pattern at walmart? And also was it very hard to make? I'm not a very experienced sewer  Tongue

Nire dress! It fits you perfectly, and I normally hate polka dots, but that material is actually a great pick! O.o
