i made this yesterday, it's non stretcch cotton, and it was a bitch to make. I love how it turned out, I had to change the bust three times because of the non-stretch factor. At first I was going for a triangle bust but the darts were really hard to make, so i thought about it a little and came up  gathering the bust via the ribbon method.




yay for flowers all year round!

much love

Your dress looks fantastic!  Can you explain your "ribbon method" a bit?  I really like the panel of diagonal stripes, looks really good.  

It snowed here yesterday, about 2 inches.  I wish I lived where you live and could wear sundresses in January.
