Thanks. I actually used bra cups so that I don't need one. Then I gathered the center.  Cheesy

Day of the dead has never been so hot! Grin

It's awesome & I have no idea how you do anything without a pattern (or with one, for that matter!)!

That is SOOOOOOOOOOOO HOTT... I LOVE that material. I saw it on the Internet and really wanted some but I just have to have stretch right now. I wish they would make fabrics like that in stretch..

Way to go, that is goregeous!!! And you are a DOLL in it!!!

This is a great dress. The dress looks absolutely gorgeous on you, so retro! I can't believe you made up the pattern, that takes some talent, I love the design. I have also been drooling over that fabric! Congrats on such a cool dress.

I love that dress! You did such a good job! (But to be really honest: I think I would change the color of the belt, it doesn't go really well with the fabric. But that's just me).

I'm wearing a red hair pin:

which is why I chose a red belt. Does that change your mind?  Cheesy

CUTE!

You should get some chunky skull beads and make a bracelet or something to go with it. :-)

That is adorable! Where did you get the fabric? And for not using a pattern I'd say it came out very nice.

No offense at all but I could not dissagree more... I love that contrast of the red belt. The color splash is superb!
