Hello everyone!  Grin

I'm very excited to present this dress to you all! I know it's not Easter anymore, but that's what the dress was made for. I just had a shoot done by my wonderful friend Hilary. She is currently studying photography at the same school I had gone to! Yay! That makes me sound old... I'm not. haha! She's only a couple of years younger. Smiley I was waiting for this to be done so I could post some nice pictures here.


Anywho, this dress is done in tiers. I ruched the layers to match up to the tier above it to give it that ruffled look and a bell shape. The top is done by stretching elastic as I sew so that it pulls the fabric in all scrunchy and stretchy! I love the way it feels. It can fit many sizes too!  Cheesy The top half has a silk ribbon that I ruched to size at the waist and on the top. The bottom has this lacey stuff that looks like a doily unrolled. hehe!

I love the fabric, though it is a little country. But I guess that style works on me, as I kinda like it. I haven't made clothes in a long time. This was all done without a pattern, just winged from looking at varying clothes I like.

I'd love to hear what everyone thinks! Smiley

I just fell in love with your dress! I want one, too! Cheesy  It's so pretty and it fits you perfectly. And you live in a very beautiful place.

I love your dress. It looks so comfy and fun and flattering too! In the third picture you look like a fairy. Tell your friend that the colors are beautiful in the photos, but she should be careful about the background....you've got stuff growing out of your head. I hope that's not harsh....I just know it's an easy mistake.
