i haven't posted in awhile due to reallife/and work which unfortunately gets in the way sometimes...but i finally finished this dress.  the fabric is pretty terrible, but i work with what i have.  i think i love it anyway, if was def a labor of love.  the top is pleated, its a bit clunky.  so, i hope you like, even if you think the fabric looks like a tablecloth (which is what someone told me!)
detail of top

whole deal....

I think that's awesome!  I loves me some plaid and you did a great job of combining it with that paisley.  It's cute and flirty (w/o being at all slutty) and flatters you very nicely.

So lovely! It reminds me of Vivienne Westwood (which equals awesome!)

I don't think I would like the fabric on it's own, but in that shape and with that paisley, I think it is FANTASTIC!  I really, really, really love the design and the whole funky look to it!

It's the coolest damn tablecloth I've ever seen.
And I mean that.

Smiley Hehe it really is an awesome dress- at first I was like - plaid and paisley? hmm... but it actually looks really rad!

I'm not going to lie, when I saw the subject of this post I was worried because it just sounded like too much, but this dress is adorable

I love the top part especially

yep, someone asked me if I "dressed in a tablecloth today?!". personally I like to read that as:

you look good enough to eat off.

that's a very nice dress, by the way, super stylish.
