I found this really great fabric from the thrift store and had it forever before deciding to make this dress! I love it! My best friend had to help me with the back and making the bust fit properly and all because I am smaller than my dressmaker. It isn't fully zipped on the dress maker either. It actually zips up to the slant. No pics of me wearing it yet, maybe when it gets warmer! There is a trim around the outer edge but I removed the bow after taking the pic cause I didn't like the way it looked.
