And here is another one. I hope you are not getting bored of my dresses yet. This time I paired a sweetheart neckline with a halter strap and another circle skirt. You can tell I am feeling very twirly lately ;-)


without a petticoat (I actually stuffed two under this one, I must be going mad....) The blue one from this dress http://horrormaedchen.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/spring-has-sprung-and-birds-are.html and the red one from this dress (hidden just added for volume)http://horrormaedchen.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/not-betty-draper-dress-yet-but-i-am.html
I think for now I will need to wear it with a cardigan but I can't wait for the Summer.

There are more pictures on my blog http://horrormaedchen.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/more-birds-and-circle-skirts.html

GAH! This is freaking adorable. i fully admit that you were one of the pushing factors that  made me decided to try some summery-twirly-dresses. I can't wait for your next one! Your technique is wonderful. Smiley

Ok, so I'm completely obsessed with Vivien of Holloway halterneck circle dresses, particularly their cotton prints. This is right up that fabulously styled alley! I LOVE it. Seriously, I want everything you make. Is this a commercial pattern, or something you drafted yourself?

This is one of my patterns. They ususally are unless stated otherwise but there are a lot of commercial patterns out there that will give you the same or similar effect. I would look for bodices you like and then just add a circle skirt (so simple, just google it and you will find tons of tutorials online).
I just had a quick look on some of major pattern company sides. Depending on what final look you want these might be good options:

http://www.simplicity.com/p-2410-misses-dresses.aspx
I'll stop here. I only looked through Simplicity and a few pages of New Look but I think you get the idea. Mix and match tops and skirts or draw your own.
I hope this is helpful.

Not trying to spam but I just found this one http://www.simplicity.com/p-5140-misses-dresses.aspx which is almost identical to mine by the looks of it apart from that loop to gather the sweetheart neckline. But I think it's a nice detail. Just add a fuller skirt and BAM!!! you've got your own.
