Joining the cavalcade of Gibbous-inspired clothing, my spring dress made from a pair of linen pants, a lovely piece of fabric I got from lovesclutter, scraps, and buttons:





I especially like how the dress flutters in the wind:

Ohh, it's gorgeous!  Great job!  (Poor sheep.  They just don't know fab dresses when they see 'em.)

you're dress is so pretty and feminine, and I love the teal color.  That style is so cool- I have never seen it before the Swap you mentioned.

did you dye the fabric and the lace?

I really love the front skirt detail--it looks fun and very lovely!

Thanks!   Nothing was dyed for this project, I was just fortunate to get a great piece from lovesclutter, and have things that went with it just right.

Oh, I should mention the basis of the bodice is the contour bust by mynailsarepink1:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=317017.0

thank you for a closer look at the bodice!  Such beautiful details--the buttons, the lace...lovely!

I just love how it is somewhat random, like a patchwork quilt...yet you pulled everything together with color placement...

Truly one of the nicer gibbous looks I have seen...I hope to see more of your lovely clothing!

Wow, I don't know how I missed this. *grin* I would not have imagined the fabric that way, just shows to go you.

I finally got my wists going so added the greenwoman bag and now this dress. You are so talented.

Let's see what I come up with on my end of the swap. I have some ideas.

Thank you all. And thanks, lovesclutter   Cheesy  - I have another dress planned with some of the other fabric you sent, I just haven't gotten around to starting it,  even though I need another "going to town" dress.   Tongue  This next one will probably be less tattered than the one posted here, but using the same bodice pattern and construction with panels from thrifted trousers.
