ducttapeaddict just made one (or two?) of this dress also - I finally got the few minutes I needed to finish mine. It actually fits! It's a garment that's not a hoodie that actually fits! I confess I have it cinched in the back as I'll need to take it in under the arms at the sides by an inch or two either side, but I'm so happy it is wearable! Yays!

EDIT - better pics!

Very pretty. What type of fabric did you use?

Thanks guys! I need to take some better pics with good hair and shoes. I look overly chunky in these ones Cheesy ALso I somehow managed to post this in the purses boards, duh - thanks mods for moving me.

Kasizzle - I used a super stretchy knit - must say I would probably go less stretchy if I did it again. The fabric isn't that heavy but the easy stretch means I can feel it pulling down on itself a little. Hopefully time won't make it get all long and deformed.

That's gorgeous!  Prefect colour and lovely fit.  I think I just might have to try that pattern.

It looks very flattering on you; and you chose a beautiful color that looks really lovely with your skintone. I hope you get lots of wear out of it. Awesome Grin
