that's adorable, too bad about the fabric though, It would make a cute sailor dress.

It's funny you mentioned that! I originally made it with a square neckline so that I could make a removable sailor collar for it. But I couldn't find a matching shade of white fabric for the collar because the dress fabric is just slightly off white (it looked odd when I tried red) and couldn't get the collar pattern to be a shape I liked. This project was just full of issues the whole time haha Tongue
meh, It's still absolutely gorgeous!

Wonderfully made and are very flattering on you.  Great style to use with your fabric.  Wear 'em proud!

Thank you everyone for the great comments and encouragement!!

Very Nice! Love how they are fully lined and made so well Smiley. I usually start with the intention of fully lining a garment and then grow less enthusiastic after having to cut out each piece twice!

I'm not a fan of having to make two of everything either but I love how it looks and feels. I also think lining is easier than facings, maybe that's just me though  Cheesy

So stinking amazing!!!  You have mad skills and I am green with jealousy.  But that's okay, because I am also hitting 'this rocks' as soon as I type this, so it all works out!!

So adorable! I think my favorite thing is the bow!
I would love to wear that skirt, the pockets seem amazing. I love that they're invisible because of how well-places they are.
Fantastic job, especially with fabric that sounds so troublesome.

Beginning of school year resolutions: Granny-square blanket, scarf for the man, swimsuit bottoms, better organization for crafting supplies, computer case of some kind, 2 amigurumi and a pair of underwear.

It looks great. I can't believe it's made out of fabric that was a disaster.
