New dress finished this afternoon Smiley The bodice is a super cool antique style atlas fabric that I picked up at my local fabric store and never found a decent project for (apart from a tote which is floating around on here somewhere) and the skirt is a nice weight cotton with lace, all tea stained and lovely, that I picked up months ago! It's a wrap around style so no need to fuss with buttons or zips - WIN! Cheesy

Total WIN!  Great use of the fabric.  My brain would have thought dull stuff like cushion or wallet or whatever.  This is great Smiley

Love that antique feel it gives. I'd wear it.
Nice creation.

Breathtaking loukr!  I love the hem Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

This is so lovely! I envision it being worn on a trip in like Italy or Spain or some place like that.

I do what I like and I like what I do.

This is gooorgeous. Seriously. You're an adventurer on a picnic or something.

I love personal swaps! I always need fabric, findings/notions, and cute handmade things!
