This dress is my pride and joy. It took two and a half years of both planning and construction. I can't believe it's actually completed!

I owe majormajor credit to jad2004, who posted the first ever Pop Top dress I ever saw back in 2006. Her dress was my inspiration and I even used the same type/color of stuff to weave the tabs together. [Ticker Tape. If you ever want to make a dress out of pop tabs too, I'd recommend using something else. It works good, but I'm pretty sure there's better for this.] The pictures of her dress aren't online anymore [sadface], but my dress looks similar to it.

Another person I would like to give credit for inspiration is Dark Seraphim. The bust portion of my dress came out of staring intensely at her's. [Her dress', not her real bust. xD]

There are so many beautiful pop tab dresses out there and I think every girl should make one! It's such a wonderful experience, making it and wearing it and I'm so happy I got to accomplish this! It takes a lot of patience and a ton of work but I know it was worth it all in the end.  Smiley

So, without further ado, PICTURES!

I'm a sucker for anything made out of tabs and your dress is amazing!! I wish I had the patience... I get bored too quickly and end up making only smaller projects. From far away it doesn't even look like tabs. You look great in it too!
I'd also like to know, how do you get in and out of it??
