Hello! So I'll be living in the dorms for the first time at Csu Channel Islands in the fall as a junior. My friend swapped me her mini fridge for a custom dress. I just finished it, and couldn't be more in love! She'll be wearing to her bridal show this weekend!

My friend, in the dress:


The back:


I used a free tutorial I found on Burdastyle.com for a contour bust dress by miasu.
Link: http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/contour-bust-dress-and-tute
I made the skirt part using a pattern I bought a long time ago for a dress I've made a few times already, which includes pockets! The best part of any skirt or dress.

The dress is fully lined, with a bit of boning in the front. The straps are just bias tape, as is the trim around the top and bottom.

C&C welcome and appreciated!!
Thanks for looking!

Thank you! I'd been wanting to make something with this fabric for a while.  It reminds me a lot of Minnie Mouse. I've got some left over, i'm going to make a skirt if I can, to wear to disneyland.

Haha Thank you! I actually found out that it was a mental hospital in high school and it's what made me want to go there, and now a few years later I finally get to transfer! My friend has been going there for two years and has plenty of creepy stories to tell. It's cool cause parts of the school haven't been updated, so they're still how they were when it was a mental hospital and you can kind of explore.

Okay, I may have Disney on the brain (We're planning my Mom's first visit this Oct.) but the first thing that crossed my mind was "This would be an awesome grownup Mini Mouse dress.

I love sweetheart bustlines.  I need to try one someday. 

Definately a good deal Fridge = custom dress.  Your friend is lucky ot have a friend like you.

Haha I ALWAYS have disney on the brain, don't worry about it. I am definitely planning to make a Minnie Skirt with it to wear to disneyland. Your mom is going to LOVE disneyland. My boyfriend bought us season passes and I can't wait to wear it there! And ride the Little Mermaid ride before it opens!!  I've been obsessed with Sweethearts also, but I think I've gotten it out of my system, now i'm completely drooling over square necklines.

Thank you! haha The friend I made this for is in love with polka dots and sweetheart tops. She has basically the exact same dress but in blue and white from target. But I agree, there are never too many polka dots! Haha thanks!
