Thank you everyone!! I went on a hunt for polka dot satin at joann's, and it was there! in like five different colors, too. and throw in a 50% off coupon...yay!!

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

it wasn't TOO hard. i'm not very experienced either, in fact this was my first big project with a pattern!! I made mistakes. a lot, actually. hahaha. but it turned out pretty ok!! the hardest part was probably the zipper...and i still didn't get it the best, but oh well. i would say go for it. just double and triple check everything before you cut, and keep making sure it'll fit before you finally sew the bodice to the skirt...my mistake!! i'm not sure if they have this pattern at walmart, i didn't check there...i actually got mine online for about 10 dollars. kind of expensive for a pattern but i really really wanted it and i know i'll reuse it again.

If you have a Joann's nearby, they carry Burda patterns.  Haven't spent enough time at Walmart to know whether they have them.  I don't know all the places online that they're available, but I know patternreview.com sells Burda patterns. (I try very hard not to look at patterns... I frequently fail.  Wink  )
