Hello!

I just wanted to share a dress that I had made for myself this Christmas. I'm so used to making things for other people - gifts, swap packages, etc. it was a nice change to have a big project that I could keep and wear around!

I've always been a huge fan of Snoopy, and it felt awesome wearing a dress that I knew nobody else would ever have. I got some stares, some compliments, and a few smiles without comment. It was a mixed bag, but I'm enamoured with it. Smiley

I used a pattern for the bust, but everything else was my own design. Without further ado, photos!

The front:

Thanks for viewing!

That's awesome!  I'm a huge Snoopy fan, so I LOVE the fabric, but the design is gorgeous as well.  It's very flattering on you, and looks really well made.  Good job!

It's a great fit. I love the white and red banding along the bottom.

as a fellow snoopy fan, I love this dress! No matter the print, though, that is a seriously adorable frock. You look great!
