Here is a dress I have made using Vogue pattern 2902 and the best material ever to have existed. I had it shipped all the way from America!
The pattern was really easy to follow, but I adjusted it a little to make it shorter and the back smaller. It only took a few days, it was my Christmas holiday project finished in time for new years eve :0)

Let me know what you think.






I like to spin like Lex






My first attempt at an invisible zip, he came out pretty well.









I like dinosaurs.

Ohholycrap, I love it.  It makes me happy to know that I'm not the only female in my 20s that loves dinosaurs.

Omg that's amazing! Where did you find that fantastic fabric? I love that its all fun and dinosaurs but not too little kid-ish. Like from far away it just looks like a fun green print and then you get up close and BAM t-rex. I'm also officially adding that pattern to my "need to buy" list next time vouge patterns go on sale.

Thanks guys, I was really excited to see so many comments! This is the first project I have ever put up Smiley

I got the fabric from eBay, it wasn't too expensive actually. BUT I did buy their entire stock haha! I have enough left to make either a matching bag or a corset maybe?

Thankyou for all the positive feedback!! :0)

This is WICKED!  I love the colour, and the style and the DINOSAURS.  And well done on your invisible zip.  I didn't realise it was a zip illustrating picture till I read the caption, possibly because I was distracted by the dinosaurs, but everyone else will be too.

This is beyond amazing.
It looks like something that you see in a store that has all of those nice and fun but wildly expensive dresses.
In other words: It's beautiful.
Plus, the dinosaur fabric is pretty amazing too.

Need. Dress. Now.

Holy bananas, batman. This is so stinkin' awesome in every conceivable way. And DINOSAURS! Oh my... Might need to get that pattern and the fan-freaking-tastic robot print fabric I found and make my own homage to your awesomeness. Also, your hair is making me miss my multicoloured days.. Sadly my job won't let me get away with anything so spectacular...
