Hi! Here is the fabulous dress I made for Greazefest this weekend. I made it in a 50s swing dress style but sadly did not get to dance. I did however have an awesome time, saw some great bands and got like a million ideas for dresses I want to make.

The dress is made of some polka dot cotton that has a little bit of stretch in it and is fully lined with a regular center back zip. The sleeves are part of the front/back pieces then there is a separate piece under the arms as well. I didn't finish that part particularly well but since it's under the arms and hidden I didn't mind so much.


This bag was made by Psycho Sue! I love it so much and it totally matched my hair-piece and necklace.


I also made my lovely friend's dress. Originally posted here; http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=354790.msg4148927#msg4148927
