Cute dress!!!  But I look like to see more the details of the front,  Smiley but things kept getting in the way.  The color look really good on you.

i looked for a more detailed picture, but unfortunately i dont have any. ill see about taking one with detail.


as for a tut, i can give you the idea, but an actual tut...im horrible at explaining things.

I started with a big rectangle in the plain red fabric, and just darted the top untill it fit around the under of my bust.

then i got another rectangle for the bust , darted that on each cup, and 2 darts  in the back just to make it smaller.

i sewed the 2 pieces together and did an "invisible zipper" down the back.

the "lady bug wings" are somewhere between a half circle, and moon shape.

it snaps all around, because sewing it directly on wouldve caused problems with the back zipper.

the 2 corners of the "wings" overlap slightly and snap together as well.

i painted the snaps red so that if the bow got in the way or the wings were unsnapping, i could take it off and the dress would be fine without them.

finish the edges, add a bow and voila!!!


this dress is so versatile. changing the bow creates a new dress, unsnapping the wings...new dress, unsnapping the wings, and adding a new bow...its almost unrecognizable.


JanxX ...where did you graduate from?

thank you all for all your beautiful comments, i've missed craftster for this very reason Cheesy

Oh how I miss being young and silly.  Sounds and looks like you had a lot of fun. 
Your dress is really cute but the fact that your shoes matched your dates shoes was pretty effin' awesome!
