I must stay that I like the longer look a bit more. But the overall design is cute, the fit and how the sleeves fall. You're pretty brave to do white on black, unless you used really good paints, it mst have taken atleast 2 coats?

Yep!  It did take two coats.  I was worried about that myself.  I never tried anything like this before, but I remember my mom always enjoyed making puffy paint shirts (hey, it was the 90's) and while I really don't care for those, t-shirt paint has it's potential.  =)   

Thanks for the critique about the length!  I'll keep that in mind for my next dress project.

Thanks for the comments, everyone!

Ah yeah!  That's really cute too.  =)  I like bold black & white prints.  They really pop.  I liked this one on that site too:

I love that we can get inspired by what is readymade and make something unique for ourselves!

I love a lot of the dresses in your links--especially now that I know the fabric can be painted and turn out so nice! Cheesy
