**Sorry about the crappy bathroom mirror pics**

The fabric was only two dollars a yard! With the cost of the zipper, buttons, and ribbon this dress came out to a little under ten dollars. Spent my day off making it, and had a few minor incidents with the zipper and hem.





I have a new favortie dress!!!

sooo dang cute! and it fits you perfectly!! was it a bought pattern or can you share? I have such a hard time finding dresses and shirts to fit my ladies! I'm a relatively small person with abnormally large boobs. Something with that shape may just work wonders for me!At least I get the ladies cut down next year:)

you are some bargain hunter!  what a steal!  The dress turned out great and is very cute on you!

Is the sash sewn on or just tied?  And how the heck did you get those marvelous orange buttons to match the ribbon!

Do you have to wear a bra under it or does the top provide any support (lining?)?

love it!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

I used Simplicity 4070 but I had to tweak it to fit my bust and I added the halter straps.

The buttons and the ribbon are actually red but my camera does weird stuff to colors. The ribbon is sewn on and I used the same fabric as lining but I still need to wear a strapless bra.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.
