I've done plenty of recons, but I've never made anything from scratch that turned out successful. I'm very proud of myself but at the same time a little apprehensive as to if it's as good as I seem to think it is.

I made it in hopes of wearing it to my friend's military graduation next weekend. The waist band is a little wonky, but you can't notice it unless it's pulled straight. And I can't decide if I like the neckline or if I want to make it boat neck.






excuse the messy room...and the pink bra

I really like the color and the way the fabric flows. Good job! Also, the neckline!

That looks like a dress that not only looks fabulous, it feels fabulous! You did an awesome job!

Personally... I really like the current neckline. Maybe you could whip up another dress with a boatline and then be able to choose which you want to wear. One lovely dress is great, but two lovely dresses rocks!  Grin

yeah, def keep the neckline! that's my favorite kind of neckline on a dress. but I have a fairly flat chest so maybe it feels different.  Cheesy just find a good bra that you feel comfortable to use underneath, like a halterneck or strapless!
and I agree with march, seems comfy!

I just love your dress. Did you use a pattern or just free style it? I might have to make one for myself. Just one question. What does the back look like?

The dress comes up like the front but i roushed(or however it's spelled) it a little to hide my rolls where my bra digs into my back. haha. I'll get someone to take a picture of it tonight and post it. It's hard to get one yourself.
And I just kinda winged it. I tried to take pictures along the way so I would know what I did later on. And I'll be happy to tell you if you'd like to know
