i am pretty flabbergasted that it only took you a day to make this... and you wore it out the same night! things like that make me want to spout emotional rants on the beauties and wonders of arts&crafts. but i'll restrain myself.
your genius changeable neckline/straps remind me of the bandeau dress from american apparel. which makes me think that rather than pay an obscene amount of money for such a simple dress, i should attempt to make one myself. thanks for the inspiration!

i know this was a while ago, but I LOVE THIS. It reminds me of something from Anthropologie.

I made this dress using your instructions with a striped knit I got for 1.00 a yard at Wal-Mart. It turned out beautifully. I didn't do the bottom gathering/ribbon because it would not look flattering with my body type, and the ribbon ended up being quilt binding because they had no ribbon in the right colors. But I LOVE the dress and am SO grateful for your tutorial!

You've totally done a great job on this dress, its super simple and the possibilities are endless on how you can vary the bodice. 

I see how you described your step 5 as "tricky", and I have a solution that I've been using for a while now.  Instead of pinning like crazy, you can use the largest straight stitch on your sewing machine along the top edge of the skirt and then pull on the threads until it gathers evenly to the same size as the bodice, and then you just pin a few times and sew!

Thanks for the comments, everyone!

Inexorablyloved, I'm so happy to hear that someone used the tutorial successfully!  I would love to see pictures of your dress and I'm sure others would too; you should definitely post some.   Smiley

Rishyness, that is a fabulous way to gather!  It sounds so easy and like it would yield much better results than my method (now I feel like smacking myself in the forehead, haha).  Thanks for the tip!

Oh my heck! That's soooo adorable! I'm just about to jump in the car and go buy some fabric to make one! I think I'm still in shock from how cute that is!
