Hey Craftsters! I have posted the same dress pattern in the past (I used a zebra print last time), but I cranked out this little gal right before a Holiday party with my family and I was just smitten. The first one I made, my mom taught me how to draft facing for the sleeves and neckline, but this time I just used bias tape, which made it much more polished looking on the inside. The pattern is from burda http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/anda and I omitted the draw string for the waist, but tailored the pattern in just a bit to make it easier to wear with a belt. The belt in this pic is just a ribbon from Michaels that I finished the ends with some snips and fray-check.

@TheManicCrafter- Thanks! I actually found the fabric in the clearance section of Jo Anns for a few bucks a yard (I think $3/yard)!

Are the silvery bits shiny/metallic? That takes the dress to a whole new level of fun. Love the belt.

That is a fantastic dress and you look lovely! You've inspired me to try a 'real' dress for myself.
