I got this design http://rocknostar.deviantart.com/art/Winter-Garden-139281402 printed by Spoonflower on Organic Cotton Sateen fabric. It was $27/yard.. but I think it was definitely worth it! I changed the colors of the design a bit on the Spoonflower website before ordering, so that's why the colors are not an exact match.

EDIT: Today was sunny so I took some pictures outside!


Here are the original pics I took:

I really love this dress! I created the entire pattern Smiley I draped the bodice and the skirt is just a gathered rectangle.

The dress is fully lined with anti-static lining.. Kind of a pain to work with. I had to switch to a much smaller needle to that I didn't snag it. I was too lazy to switch back and forth and ended up breaking 3 needles.. One of which actually hit me in the face when it broke off. o.O I learned my lesson!

I even made a head bow to match!

And here is a pic of me wearing it in the stacks at my old school

I'm so excited about this dress! I am planning to wear it to a craft fair I'm participating in soon Smiley
