thanks, everyone. =)

i did use a pattern. mccall's 5878. this dress was view b. really easy to follow. it calls for interfacing to reinforce the hem of each side which i left out as well as 5 snaps to do away with the problem i have with keeping it together. =P i had never done snaps so i figured i'd try to do without. i'd recommend trying them anyway. =P

also, the sizes run a little small, but i don't think i would have made a bigger size. it's just kind of an odd fit, but once i positioned it correctly on myself it worked well.

i actually don't go to SCAD. =P not going the art/design school route. i go to vanderbilt university. i'm a pre-med. =P

I go to one of those fancy southern private schools, and am very familiar with this rich girl sundress phenomenon. Glad that you made some of your own! Don't feel like you have to be like all the preppy girls and wear frilly little dresses all the time, though!
Velcro was a smart choice.

Absolutely beautiful!
I go to a rich girl school (though not in the south) and they also have this interesting obsession with dresses! I think your's blow theirs out of the water!
