not quite as exciting as my scrap dress, but i am still very proud of how this turned out.





somehow this took me over a day and a half to make. it was the back. i had no idea what i wanted to do with it. & then i was inspired by the wonderful vivifromage.



besides the usual refashion, i also dipped this in a strong tea solution for about an hour. (the beige fabric was actually a very bright white) unfortunately that marvelous antique look isn't as prominent in the pictures. that same antique look is half the reason i love it so very much.

thanks for looking!

gorgeous! love the back, every time i try to do something like that i always forget to measure it so that it'll cover my bra and then never end up wearing it, but i think you may have inspired me to try again cuz that looks super cute. i also love the little black, overskirt bit. adds so much too it and really makes it stand out from your standard t-shirt into a dress type thing

I say it IS as exciting as the pink and black dress, even if the colors do not jump out at you so much. I love the shape of the dress, it looks awesome on you... and the detail on the back is just darling! Very well done! Grin
