This is made of strech gabardine. It has no zipper or any kind of fastening, I prefer to have a little hard time wearing the dress than to sew by hand the invisible zipper (I can't sew it with my sewing machine Embarrassed). Plus I live in a place of world where it's very difficult to find sewing notions, even sewing thread sometimes, so I didn't want to go out searching red zipper only to come back home with empty hands Sad)
The  bodice has gussets which gave me a really hard time. Except of this the dress was a very easy and fast project.









I hope you like it!!

Wonderful! It fits you so well I am amazed you could get in it without a zipper.

I'm very glad you like it girls. It's easy enough to get in without a zipper because the fabric has a lot of stretch!  Thank you all for your kind comments!

Red is my favorite color--you look striking in this dress!  It fits so well and has your signature "girly" bow!

Where do you have to go to get your fabrics?  They always look so high quality and bright...

Are invisible zippers difficult to find or does your sewing machine not sew them?  I was just wondering why you have to sew them by hand... Sad

Thank you very much for your comments:) I buy most of my fabrics from a shop where almost everything is sold at the crazy price 1euro/meter!!!  And they really have very nice quality for their price.
I don't even have the proper zipper foot to sew invisible zippers... to be honest it was only 1 year ago when I sew my first one and since then I sew them by hand.
I live in a lonely island and many times I have searched for thread or zipper and couldn't find because the shop had run out of them:( So the day I was sewing the dress I was bored to get out and search. And since the fabric was stretch enough the easier thing was to skip the zipper Cheesy

You do very well with what you have!  You see the fabric and know how to use it best...your wardrobe is colorful, young and fun...I am afraid if I lived on an island, I would be nearly naked most of the time! Cheesy
