I'm really proud of this dress. I don't usually buy fabric from the store (as opposed to salvaging thrifted clothes) but I have to admit it's a little easier.





I used two yards of fabric, a length of cord I had lying around, and some lace at the bottom.



This is the back!



And this is the blue fabric, it's not actually solid, but my pictures don't show the print very well.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks! No, no pattern.. I made it up myself. It was my first try at a fitted(ish) bodice, so that took quite a while to get right...
