i barely have time/energy to sew anymore. darn school. but i was able to make this today Smiley
i've been wanting to make a dress out of this fabric for so long. & i wanted to try a low-waisted non-stretch fitted dress for once.







i think it turned out well Smiley

for those interested, there's more background info + in progress shots on my blog.

thanks for looking!

OOOOO....very nice.  Did you draft your own pattern?  I very much enjoy the trim at the seams.

Love low (and high!) waisted dresses. Normal waists are so boring!

wow! I love this! I love how (im not sure exactly how long it goes, but...) it looks like it'll elongate the legs, torso, and the neck, and it's got such a fun, flirty, girlie print (the lace is nice!!!). And it's a perfect summertime dress! Great job!

Loving all the cherry dresses I'm seeing lately! This fabric is cool. Well made dress, and the green trim is a super cute touch!
