to post a topic in the Clothing completed projects !!! This week i've been on a sewing roll 'sew' to speak. [ lame pun intended] Normally when me and my sewing machine get together , its for a recon and i end up getting frustrated and cursing the thing out no more than half way through. but latley things have been going well.. so i took on the challenge of making a dress..
The fabric is vintage ( or at least smells it ) and was given to me by a close friend.
the dress was fashioned after a leopard print one i found at good ol' salvo that i loved , but the material was just to heavy for summer.
And this weeks theme for picture posing is urban outfitters !  Grin










and finally the back.. i admit it gave me quite a time due to a series of rookie mistakes , but finally with some fanessing and a zipper, it only turned out a bit wonkey


i have yet to hem the bottom, but i was just so darn excited i had to show it to everyone...! Smiley

EDIT: its more of the peices of the dress rather than a tute.. but you get the idea.. i hope.. the only part that makes it a smidge complex is adding a few inches to the front for two pleats..
