What a great reconstruction! I especially like the pleats in the back.

thank you thank you thank you!  i was reading another post that referred to your pleat tutorial and thought 'oh good, i wanted to find out how to do those'  only to click on the link and realize that you had written it in response to my question!  haha, i'm a big dork.  but it makes a lot of sense to me (at least in theory, i will let you know tomorrow how i do)
yay!  more fun!  i can't wait to get home and play!
especially now that i found out i don't have to rethread my serger every time i use it, i just need to tie off the threads.  man, i'm a dummy sometimes, i got it at christmas and have only used it 2-3 times because of that until i mentioned it to a coworker who sews (a lot more than me) and she gave me a look like this... Huh crossed with this  Undecided, this  Shocked, and this  Cheesy
and explained to me what i should be doing.

I think it is an adorable dress! The patterns mix just fine and I like all the overall style of the dress. The straps look just fine too. Wink
I am currently working on a similar project. I was given a bunch of plaid mens dress shirts and I am reconstructing it to be a nice sun dress of sorts minus the pleats. Hopefully it will fit me though -.^.
Great work!!

That's fantastic. I get nervous about mixing patterns, but this is inspiring. I think I try to stay too "safe," but I'll think of this dress next time I'm trying to coordinate fabrics. Thanks for sharing.
