Hi guys. I've been sewing forever but never made a dress or any piece of clothing really. I have an obsession with rabbits, so I found this great fabric with orange bunnies all over, found green velvety bra straps at the fabric store for about 25 cents each, and that cute white trim at the bottom of the dress & orange trim at the top both at Walmart. Made the dress from scratch & really loved how it turned out. I've only got 2 pics for now, but will add more with me wearing it, soon. Tell me what you think, please ! Thanks.

This dress is really pretty. Something I'd wear myself. Not bad for a first time dress-hope it has inspired you to make other things!

Very cute and great job, especially not using a pattern! 
Btw: I noticed your dress form...what's the material on the outside of it...it looks like craft paper?  Just curious  Smiley

The material of the dress form is packing tape. Here is the tutorial for my homemade packing tape dress form, if you'd like.
