(please, please excuse my inability to make sane faces at the camera Wink)

So I go to walmart (shh, not many other places with good fabric here) all like, let's buy some nice normal fabric to make a cute dress! And then I see the flames. And the lightning bolts.
So much for the sane dress.
(is it just me, or are we a lot of craftsters in love with this flamey blue fabric?)



It has lace along the top and bottom (stupid pleats. no love. takes forever!) and down the front seams. I had to dye the one in the front, because my local stores seem to believe black and white is how all lace should be. Blue, I say!  I also added d-rings and a ribbon (I brought both ends back to tie in a bow over my butt instead of at the bottom of each panel.. it helps make the back less wrinkly.


It's based on this lovely tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=77268.0  with a lot of adjusting xD

Took a few days in all, spread over about a week and a half because half the time I wanted to make this face at my mom's failing sewing machine:

Wow! I love this dress! You did such a good job-even dying your own lace! I bet it was worth all the effort.

Hey, this is really cool! The fabrics by themselves are loud, but together, and in this particular dress style, they work well. I like the pleated ruffle-y thing on the bottom, as well as the lace. Great job!
