so I've (obviously) been finally photographing my collection of self-made clothing I have sitting around. I made this one last year out of this awesome fabric that's double sided brown and red. I still have soooo many yards of this stuff left. I pleated the whole bodice which created the awesome effect of being really stretchy. who knew? I dig it. and the pin in the center is a vintage one of my grandmother's. It just happened to match perfectly

Incredible! I like the frayed detail at the bust, and of course, all the little...pintuck things!
Great job.

I am incredibly impressed by your patience and skill and the overall effect. I would buy this dress off the rack--and that's saying a lot because I hardly ever buy clothes. I would also have to purchase a dress like this rather than make it because I would NEVER do all those little pleats myself. Kudos to you. Really fabulous. I just want to reach through the screen and try it on!

Oh wow.
This dress is amazing!
I'd never have the patience to do all of those pleats.
And how lucky that the vintage pin just happened to match perfectly.

Great work!

 Grin I'm such an idiot! I kept admiring all those great dresses, the white graduation dress, the blue and yellow summer dress, the lovely light blue with dots, the cat-pattern one with that great closure in the back (I want it so bad... sigh) and I said to myself "it must be the dressform, all the people with this exact dressform make great stuff, maybe I should get the same one"...  well, OBudah, turns out you're behind it. I love the things you make! And I might be a little stupid, but at least I don't have to buy the dress form  Wink
