I made this dress for my birthday... in March. I cut out hundreds of yellow circles, pinked the edges and then sewed them in rows to a really simple sheath (made from Simplicity Pattern 2725, another attempt at which you can see here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=305021.msg3492353#msg3492353)




I love it. I haven't tried laundering it yet, should be interesting. I purposefully left the circles unfinished to allow for the decomposition of form... a somewhat morbid birthday concept.



I had an awesome birthday. Here are some gratuitous birthday festivity shots:


Cupcakes in cake cones and my amazing Dairy Queen ice cream cake. When I picked it up from DQ the two teen girls working there were *very* excited to meet the person who had ordered such a glorious cake. The 29-year-old person Smiley


Thanks for looking!

That is a freakin' awesome dress!  If I had any patience, I would want one in pink.  But I am, shall we say, a deluxe cupcake and it would take many circles to cover this booty!!

Are the circles cotton?

Awesome!

Are the circles cotton?

I think so... I had about three yards of this yellow fabric. It's not like stretchy t-shirt cotton, but I think it is cotton.

I just turned 30 and my husband bought me the Squishables.com octopus Cheesy
So I say your pegasus rainbow cake is just fantastic!

And that dress is fantastic, too. I think I could sew the circles on, or cut the circles out..but I don't think I'd have the patience to do both Cheesy

Much better than the first attempt with that pattern (of course the belt helped that one). Very cute.....and you certainly don't look 29!

What a fun birthday outfit! It looks perfect on you. And yes, that cake is amazing. Reminds me of the Ben10 birthday cake my friend got for herself last year. Growing old is mandatory, but growing up is optional! Wink

Not forever, but I was up late sewing the night before. I spent some time cutting out all the circles, some time placing them on the dress in tiers (starting from the bottom up so they could overlap, but I dealt with the darts first) and more time than I expected sewing them down. It is totally doable, and rainbow would be AWESOME!

Thanks all!

Aw, I take that as a great compliment! I'm not sure if it means "baller" like basketball or "ballerina..." but I'll take it.

I recommend unicorn cakes for ALL!

This year I turn 30, so I'll have to come up with something pretty cool to wear...
