Thanks for all the compliments.  Smiley

I probably should have clarified in the first post-- I didn't actually do the tie-dye on the fabric. I bought it like that.

decibel-- the flowers are woven into the fabric as well, so what you're seeing is the dye on the shinier threads.

And no, I'm not using it for anything special, I figure I'll just wear it for church and stuff. Or if I ever get a date again.  Wink

That's really pretty.. I don't really understand tie-dye, but if I did, I'd be buying white dresses to do this to.

GraceyAli-- I used a rather modified version of Butterick 6406 to make the dress lining (shortened it to the knee and raised the neckline and had to take in the sides quite a bit. I don't think that pattern's in print anymore, it was just in my stash, but it was a simple long, sleeveless, empire-waist dress. I definitely did a muslin version first on this one!)

For the tie-dye part, once I had the lining fitted to the way I wanted it, I put it on my mannequin and more or less draped the fabric the way I wanted it-- I did the bodice and the skirt first (you can't really see it in the pic, but the tie-dyed fabric came kind of pleated, so I basted the pleats in at the waist to make them stay), and then did the band at the waist last, and then sewed the whole thing together. It took a couple weeks to make the dress, but it was so worth it because it turned out almost exactly like I'd pictured it in my head.
