Attention Craftster! I am 16 as of March 30, and couldn't be happier! And if your wondering, no I honestly don't feel different physically Wink But my crochet mentality has sure come a long way. I decided a long time ago that I was going to crochet my sweet sixteen dress, and happily did so from March.19 to March 23 (which was the last week of Spring Break).
I'm also quite excited to say that this dress is inspired by Avatar (my most favourite movie in the world!). You can probably see it in the beading, I made sure to buy tribal inspired beads and such. A confession: I became quite lazy over the last days of spring break and wasn't as generous with my beading as I wish I was! But no matter what this dress will always have a special place in my heart!

I love crocheted dresses! This is something I aspire to build up to but at the moment I need to find projects for all my bits and bobs of wool! I love the colour you chose it's beautiful and Happy birthday! I wish I was 16 again!  Sadly I'll be 25 this year, enjoy your youth it'll run away before you even realise! Cheesy

Good job, it looks like it fits you well.  You know, you can still add more beads - they can be sewn on instead of crocheted on - just an idea.

This is a gorgeous dress. It looks amazing. I honestly wish I had the patience to make a project that large.

This looks GREAT! Did you use a pattern or are you just awesome enough that you made it up as you went?
