Good for you! That's quite an undertaking and you look lovely.

You did a wonderful job making this dress for your senior prom. It is beautiful and I love the color!

Love the color and the pattern. Awesome job.

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

Thanks, you guys! I'm sorry it took me so long to reply. I kept meaning to. I know, I know. What a pitiful excuse Wink

Christinadavinci: You should! Find a fun white fabric to play up the simplicity.

E.J.: That petticoat idea sounds fantastic! I would have done so in a heartbeat if I owned one. I think it would look fun shorter, but my legs weren't in such great condition when I was making it.
The dress wasn't difficult at all except for one or two steps, joining of the bodice&skirt and inserting the zipper. Then again, I've never done anything like this. It's probably not as hard for normal-abled sewer.
