One day, in awful MN, a young girl of 13 took a trip to the fabric store, where they were selling Butterwick patterns for $.99. She bough 5 pattersn... than went back for fabric on the Fourth of July where fabric was 1/2 off. $9 later and she's on her way home to start making said dress! 5 hours later, and she's down. She discovered two things; that the dress was a tad to big for her, and that she hates Butterwick patterns with a passion. I She didn't use them, she cut the pieces and winged it. Comments/critism please!

It's so pretty! - kinda reminds me of a relaxed style of -that- Marilyn Monroe dress, very glam.

Well done.  Cheesy

This rocks! I dont know many 13 yr olds (or adults!) that sew this nicely...
Where do u think its too big? From the pics it looks like it fits in a comfy way, not too tight or 2 loose.
If its the waist, can you make a sash or tie a ribbon around the waist?
Either way, this dress is worth way more than the $9 to make it!

It fits a little big in the waist, but mainly the boobs. I'm very small, like not even an AA in womens, so it made it hard to get a bodice that fits properally. Hopefully I grow soon. I'm very excited to wear it in public!
