So I can't pull off mini dresses. I'm too tall, so when I saw this first dress from Tobi I was sad that I'd never be able to wear such a gem.



So I decided to take the DIY route and make my own, adding sleeves and about 10 inches to the skirt.



 I drafted the bodice and then I used Newlook 6723 for the skirt because I was not about to draft a skirt pattern because they are annoying and big and I hate doing them. Smiley



Blogged about here http://hayleeatkinson.blogspot.com/2013/03/teach-me-how-to-shimmer.html for those of you who are interested.
