I was trying to decide on what to wear for my husband's cousin's wedding so of course I was on Craftster's when I stumbled upon this awesome dress: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=154676.0
So of course I had to make one right away! I got the pattern on ebay for .99 and .99 in shipping and had it 3 days later. I went to JoAnns and got this gorgeous silky fabric and started sewing. It took FOREVER to cut out the peices because I decided to line the whole thing due to the fabric being a bit see thru.
This was my first time using piping and that's something I think I'll have to work on. Also this was my first ever zipper. Turns out the thought of putting a zipper in is alot scarier than actually doing it.
I'm very happy with how the dress turned out but not so happy with how I looked in it. My husband said I looked awesome and so did everyone else but I'm not too sure. (No I'm not fishing for compliments! lol)
To match my dress I made something similar for my 4 year old. I took her favorite dress that's similar in style and copied a pattern onto newspaper. Then I did the same basic thing as with my dress, Line, pipe, zipper etc.....
Please give me some feedback since this is the first thing I've made with a pattern..... I'm itching to do more but I wanted som expert opinions.

Ignore the goofy looking guy. lol! This is the best picture I have of the piping part.
