Loving this dress - I'm envisioning it for fall with a cardigan over, tights and boots, too!
The skull and roses fabric came from eBay. McCall's pattern is nice to work with... sexy, I think

Great job! I love that.  The pattern is cute and the shape is also really flattering; I love the wrap style.  I definitely can see it working great with a little sweater over it and some boots Smiley
Yours makes it look way hipper than the ones on the pattern envelope too. Wink

I really like this; I've been looking for a wrap dress pattern for a while. The dress looks great on you, and you sewed it beautifully. What kind of material is the fabric?

Thank you! It's a thin stretch knit. The pattern calls for any stretch knits.

Thanks for posting this!  I just got that fabric like 2 weeks ago and I can't wait to finish up my current projects so I can make me one now!  I really need new dresses, I can't wait!  Was the pattern easy to work with?

Fairly. There was one part where you layer the sections where I just did what I felt would work.
