It's been a while since I've posted anything here!  So over winter break I was busy sewing, and came up with this dress in about 2 days.  The bodice is lined, there is a side zipper, and the skirt is fully hemmed (oh how I hated doing that!!!).  Its basically a fitted tank top attached to a circle skirt. I got the fabric from a brand new $3 tablecloth.  Its 100% cotton, loose weave, and heavy in weight. 

The inspiration dress:


The dress without the bow:


With the bow:  I actually made the bow for another dress, but it didn't look right.  So I'm happy that I get to use it for this dress!

Lovely!  Did you end up using a pattern, or winging it?  Great work!   Cheesy
