Hello Everybody!!
This is my first project post!!
I made this dress for Formal Day at our school.  Everybody loved it and loved it even more when I told them I made it........last night.  That's right, the whole thing last night with no pattern!!  Grin

I think it reminds me of a vintage dress. I was inspired to make this dress when I saw this post by Red Cat, White Velvet
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=213440.0

Anyway, time for the pics
Sorry, some are kind of blurry!!  Wink





Sorry for the dirty mirror-its kinda old











Hope you liked it!!!!!  Smiley

So pretty! The dress looks very princess-y! (Maybe because of the bow? I don't know...) Love it!

awesome job!  i like the color contrast--very sweet and girly, if you will.  one night is a short time to make a dress (i like to take my time), so you should definitely be proud!
