I really like the shape of that dress. Youve got one hip DD there. Smiley

that looks great... It looks store bought. Thumbs Up! How did you make a pattern for it? It did you make it up as you went along?

thanks! Smiley It took me a while to figure out the pattern, but mostly because i had no idea what i was doing. lol. I did end up drafting the whole pattern on paper before I started. Started out by tracing a couple of store bought dresses. (That was mostly helpful for size/length, the sleeves, and back bodice piece.) Then I also used NewLook 6477 to get an idea of the curves for neckline (but kind of extended since I wanted to go all the way to side seams) and the shape of the skirt. And, of course, vegbee's tutorial was an invaluable guide to how these sort of things go together.

i know what you mean. i've gotten some really nice comments from people who say i could make and sell these for the big bucks, but i'm not sure the appeal would be there with any old shirt. (that, and i'm too slow and sloppy to sew for others!) not that this is the only shirt in the world that would work for this, but the graphic elements do a lot for the dress.

in any case, i think if you made one from a plain tee and added some sort of stenciled or appliqud stuff, it would be super cute, too.  something along the lines of this embroidered Glug Baby dress which was one of my original inspirations...

Cheytown: I have really been thinking of doing embroidery's and appliques, but every time I think about it my brain malfunctions because I just cant decide what to do!!!  But I have this side show freak, half man half woman shirt I want to turn in to a dress for the babe, we will see how that goes!
