Oh I love this! I'm a plus sized girl and it looks so flattering! I can definitely see myself wearing something like this. I especially like how you belted it, very nice indeed.

I've never particularly dyed anything...well tye dyed yes but not anything with gradients like that. Exactly how did you do it if you dont mind me askin?

And yes for another tutorial!

EDIT:!!! I was just looking at the picture you had posted of the measurements you used to make this. Exactly how do the button holes work and how large are they? I'm a bit confused as I can't seem to find any additional information on the construction of a Kariza.

The button holes are to thread the straps through to make them lie flat or change direction, depending on how it's tied. I made mine vertical to the skirt, about the same length as the width of the straps.

Maybe I should make a tutorial for the tutorial challenge  Tongue

I love your skirt/dress.  I think the colour is absolutely fantastic.

Great job.

Fan-freaking-tastic! The dyeing technique alone blows me away, but I love the convertible part of the design! Please, please PLEASE enter the tutorial challenge with this!

*fabulous* process pictures, and I love the one shoulder version (the fourth variation).

Very nicely done!

This is utterly brilliant! I love it.

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.
