I bought this pattern a couple of weeks ago but I am not sure what fabric I want to use.  Please post a picture of your dress.  Did you have to alter it in any way?

well, i made a few changes to the pattern. it calls for the elastic in the back, and i decided instead to wear a belt with the dress, like the picture has, and skip the elastic. and, i made the skirt length shorter. when i cut the pattern out, the skirt came down to my ankles (im 5'5"), so i shortened that. but both of those were personal preferences.

ill post a picture soon!

This is the fabric I am thinking of using for my dress.  Maybe I will start it tomorrow.  I will definitely have to shorten mine, I am 5'3" so it will be way too long on me too.

oh, the other change i made was made the bias tape out of my fabric, instead of buying some from the store.

OMG...

will summer vacation (and my mom driving my "adult" self to the stupid suburban joanns when I go visit) EVER come?  not fast enough.  Thanks for the heads up on this great pattern!

ps.  any ready-to-wear size 8's make this?  what does that translate to with this pattern, size-wise?

thanks!
