I found this awesome yellow fabric ages ago on sale. I didn't know what I wanted to do with it so I just bought lots of it. I'm sure you can all relate. I picked up the green later and then the lightbulb went on! I wanted to do a pleated skirt with crossed straps. Well, the pleat gaps very obviously (you can see what I mean in the photo) and I ended up cutting the straps too short, too soon. So, while I completely failed at executing the original idea, it wins by still being very cute Smiley

I will not apologize for being unphotogenic. I have a great personality and I'm quite a catch.


Boob closeup. You can see what I mean about the pleat here. Since the fabric is so loud, most people probably wouldn't even notice it's there. Also, check out my necklace. I found those beads and thought they matched so well!


The back, in all its un-crossed glory.


Thanks for looking! C+C welcome.

Great job! I love how loud it is!
It seems to fit like a glove-not many can fit themselves that well.

Those colours go so well together - so cool! It looks like it'd be the prefect summer BBQ party dress! Cheesy -x-

This is super cute. That being said, go crack open the newest Vogue and see how in style you are, and some great accessory options! This has a great African vibe to it. It would look awesome with some strappy leather sandals and lots of  jewelry and natural fibers. Like hemp, leather, feathers...Can you tell I'm a bit jealous Grin
