i liked the dress and wasnt about to spend $48 on something i could make for less than $2. literally, this fabric was $1 a yard. so here it is.

looks great!  and damn urban outfiiters.. they have cool looking stuff but will rob you.  they want way to much from their stuff.  I did manage to get two matching duvet cover on clearance from them and turned them into curtains.

but back to the dress it looks great and I like those colors better.

Way too cute! And $48?Huh? No f****ing way. I likes your way of thinking, and you know what? - you just gave yourself $46 to spend on more fabric, in a way.

Hmmmmmm..... Yep, I like that kind of math.

Your dress is excellent! and it's such a simple design to start with. You really hit it with this one.

I love the same dress and $48 is too steep for a simple dress. Great job on yours! I appreciate the close up shot, I can see how to make the top portion.  Wink

Seriously, yours is better. I also like how you have that strap that makes it a halter. Or not.

first off, thanks for the compliments.  Grin

im not sure what kind of fabric it is. all i know is its stretchy. aha.

but heres a quick tutorial and the whole thing is just a bunch of tubes really.

1. i simply measured around the bust and then made it 12 inches the other way. i folded it in half so it held better at the top so now its 6 inches. and then i sewed it.

2. then for the body part im not sure how wide mine is but thats really up to you. but its just a tube gathered in a random places really. there was no thought put into where the gathers would be.

3. i then made a tube at about 24 inches in length and about 3 inches (when folded so 6 really) in width and turned that inside out.

4. when you sew the top to the bottom, one side of the strap is going to go inside and the other side is going to go outside.

heres a quick little picture to better understand this.
