I honestly adore this dress. I found the fabric at JoAnn's for only $3 a yard and fell in love. Then I found a lovely dress pattern. Then my grandma got a new sewing machine for us! Good-bye old Bernina! (for now.) Shocked Anyways, this is a dress that I can't help but show on craftser. My mom helped me so much, but it was really fun for me to watch her in action.

Sorry to just say the same thing as everyone else, but that's fantastic! I absolutely love it.

Rather unrelated, but I'd thought about making that pattern before, but I'm short-waisted and worried that it would be really unflattering. Looks amazing on you, good job!

I can't really give you a tutorial because it was a pattern. If you are looking to do the tulle the easiest way to learn is use the pattern.  Wink Thanks for all the lovely compliments. they make me smile.

You rock!  Those two colours together are my current number 1 favourite colour combination (they are the colours of my logo!  ha!).  The dress is uber cute, also - fantastic job all round!
