I found 30 mins to make it!  though I made mine a shirt, cause I don't generally wear dresses.  When I get a ribbon long enough to tie it in more the one way and a belt that matches it, I will take a pic and share it!

I made this last night, just need a ribbon to go through it. I have a question though, on the "un-picked" part, it seems to be too short, after making the ribbon casing it's only about 3-4 inches long (and I made it just above 6 inches to begin with). Does yours still tie in the same ways with an opening/slit that is that big? My sister has a le Sac I was using for reference and it has about 6-8 inches for the slit even with the casing. I used just plain old non-stretchy cotton, if that helps.

Thanks for the tutorial. Here is a link to my version, which I made of single jersey.

ok. my slit was still about 6 1/2 inches, but i am fairly petite [im 5'2] so it worked for me. for taller girls or ones with larger boobs, it should probably be a little longer. if you need to, you should just be able to unpick it some more down the seams and sew it just like before. then you could have a longer slit in it.

Thanks so much Smiley I'm 5'4" and have a bit of a chest so I will unpick mine more than likely, I still have to buy my length of ribbon to complete it so I'm anxiously awaiting seeing what it looks like!

I think your floral dress is sooo pretty!

Can anyone else believe that American Apparel charges $10 for the STRING?!  http://store.americanapparel.net/rsa0500.html

Insane!

Great job doing it yourself, and yours are nicer than the AA versions anyway!
