You did a outstanding job without a pattern- I kinda wish I hadn't been brainwashed in jr. high in how to sew "properly" , you young people today take me breath away with your creativity. And I'd say the fit is perfect!

Great dress!  And your man might wonder where you were wearing that while he was out of town!  LOL  I have aquestion though:  I've been drafting a pattern for a shirt like this - I don't have one to work from though.  Anyhow, did you hem, turn under the cross-over bits before you attached them together - I guess, huh? and the  uppermost part to the bodice?  And what did you do with the seam allownaces from attaching the upper to the lower?  Did you use a serger?  So many questions, so little time.  lol

Oh, and great color!

The dress looks fantastic. However, I had a question about the bust. In the first two photos the it looks like the left panel is on the top, but the third photo shows the right bust panel on top. Did you design the dress in a special way?

I actually didn't hem anything, I just pinned both of the bodice (cross-over) parts to the band around the waist and sewed it all at the same time.  For the seam allowances I really didn't measure, probably 1/8" or so?  Ha I just eyeballed it.  And I do not have a serger, so no.

You're right, I took those pics in the mirror.  I'm such a newbie I don't know what fabric it is, but is was in the "t-shirt" fabric section of the store.  I think it's a jersey...
