Thats such a great idea! I wish I had the confidence to wear it but it would be a great first project for me! Oh well I might make it and alter it or weah it over a bikini when I go to the beach (once summer returns!!!)

I'd really like to try my hand at this dress but am unsure as to what kind of fabric to use (sewing newbie).  Huh

the dress is made out of cotton jersey. anything cotton would rule...old sheets? something summery

im so gonna try this dress-ive been looking for tutes to make some cute summery dresses with my lolita fabrics. btw-to all the people who said they cant wear this because of your boobies-just wear a cami underneath!i think it would still look adorable and that is what im gonna do. ormaybe ill put some place between the breast part.

oh, and appleshanon-i love your hair. ive wanted my hair those colors for a while now but ive been too chicken to do it

I would absolutely love to have a personal swap! I'm interested in jewelry, soap, and anything that inspires you on my Pinterest

Thanks you appleshannon for the tutorial  Smiley
I gave it a try this week-end. I really like the way the skirt-part drapes. Here is the result :

My version is slightly different from the original :
- the top part joins (no space between my breasts)
- the skirt part in longer
- I had to open it in the back in order to get in and out  Undecided

I may make this again in a better fabric ! Tongue

super cute dress, and awesomely simple tutorial!  Smiley

i'm curious about the back - does it have a cowl-ish draping effect in the back? i've been looking at your tutorial and thinking of making a dress for myself. but i was wondering about the back of the "top" part and think i might be missing something. if the elastic is at the top of the "bottom," what prevents the top of the "top" from gaping in the back? or did you cut your "top" much narrower than your "bottom"?

hope you don't mind my questions; thanks for posting this project!

where are we going, and why am i in this handbasket?
