When I first saw the Le Sac dress on the AA website I thought, "I could make that.  I really want that!"  So finally I delved into my collection of vintage dresses to reconstruct a huge shirt-dress with a great print.  I just hacked it off at the armpits, bound the raw edges and added a channel for the ribbon to go through.

Unfortunately I was on a shopping spree high and forked over the ridiculous price for the  Le Sac dress. NOW I CAN'T EVEN FIND A WAY TO WEAR IT THAT FLATTERS MY BODY!
grrrrrr.
you should post some different ways that you wear yours, it looks great tho!
I REALLY like the print!!

awesome job!
I love the idea of that dress, but I know it won't do near as much for me as it does for you!

Thanks guys!  I haven't gotten around to taking any more pictures of it, but I'm sure I will when I wear it out.  It's quite a versatile piece.

I love the colors on the dress!
I looked over at the AA website for the dress...you really can wear it alot of ways!!! I think I might make one too...except maybe as a shirt, I hardly wear dresses.

okay, so i've been looking at the pics of the dress online and i can't seem to get the damn thing right. so its pretty much a loose fitting tube only sewn halfway up with the sheath for the ribbon right?

sorry, i need massive explaining in order to get things Sad
