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

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