I learned all my morality from the My Little Pony Movie:

Morning Glory: They need our help, Rosedust!

Rosedust: It's not our fight, Morning Glory.

Megan: Yes it is! It's everyone's fight!

Lickety-Split: Yeah! Everybody has to help everyone else!

oh, i forgot to mention that one of the reasons I made my dress was because of my need to save money - i think I spent a total of $35 for dress, purse and shoes. (the shoes were my mother's from the eighties)

Super cute---I really like the way the top crosses under the boobular region.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

this dress had a weird construction - the fronts clip in the back, then there's a zipper, then the ties cross in front. (I also added snaps to attach the ties to the front pieces.)

I agree with the weird construction, I'm making that pattern right now and it's like.....really?  I think it is a pain.  I mean, the hooks AND a zipper?  wtf?  I'm going to try and sew it all into the zipper.  I don't know why they did that, I think it is really ridiculous.
Yours turned out fantastic!  I love the fabric!
