It's not so much spring here.... just that it stopped being -40 and now it's just -5. Therefore, it's dress-makin time!

It's pretty exciting and faux-wrap style.


I'm very excited to wear it out on Saturday for birthday-party-based-martinis. Yay dress, and yay birthday!!

Looks great Smiley  Did you use a pattern or freehand it?  I like the ribbon-it really adds a nice touch to it Smiley

It was 45 degrees here today- which was SOOO nice compared to the negative degrees we had last week!

I freehanded it this afternoon, while a chum made helpful comments.
I must add, I'm very jealous of your weather.

Ooooh!  I like that a lot!  Does it have a zipper in the back or on the side?  I really really like your dress!

Thanks everyone!
And to answer the last question... no, there's no zipper. It's a stretch fabric, and I can wiggle into it.  I always muck up zippers, so I figured it wouldn't be worth the effort.
