I got the idea for this dress from the super talented lady over at One Avian Daemon. Here's the link to her work and general instruction for this dress:

I've been meaning to try this for ever and I finally got around to it. I love LOVE love the results. Here's me in it!



I altered it a little from the original, but not too much. I changed the neckline all the way around, and added the gathering in the center of the bodice to give it some more shape. It has a full circle skirt and its so fun to twirl in!! Hope you like it!
I wrote more about working on it here: http://favorthebrave.blogspot.com/2011/06/i-made-it-picnic-dress.html

I love circle skirts Smiley The centre gathering does give it a lift too, well done.
