I haz made a dress!



We have a rockabilly theme party next week and I had nothing to wear - but a whole lot of white polkadot streachjersy...



 Im super happy with it. I think it looks really good. Some of the sewing in the back is a bit... alternative, but who can tell? Tongue Im wearing it with a black cardigan I own. Ill do that at the party as well - anything else will be way to cold at this time of year. There is still half a meter of snow outside. Brrr



I originally intended for the whole dress to be in polkadots - but its a bit much when youre my size Smiley Its not very rockabilly but I think everybody will get what i was going for anyways.

I like how you choose to make the bottom a different color, that's something i need to try. I love everything about the last picture especially your pose and face!! Please take and post pictures at the event.

Cute! The bodice is perfect--fits you like a glove and makes you look all curvy and sexy! Amazing!  And I think the two-tone looks great.

This is such a great dress! I love how you did the dual polkadots and black. It looks very rockabilly to me - we just did a rockabilly photo shoot over here and this would have gone perfect!!

You look drop dead gorgeous in that dress. As a fuller sized female myself I've got itchy fingers to make something similar to that top.
