Heya all!

So for my birthday I deiced to treat myself to two yards of white Starship Enterprise print fabric because I'm a dork like that. For a while I didn't really know what I wanted, but the beautiful weather compelled me to make a comfortable sweetheart neckline dress.

I don't have any in progress pictures because I don't have my camera with me at school, but it was really simple to draft and sew together. I did it all by hand because, once again, I don't have my sewing machine with me. It can be done by hand or by machine. If you do it by hand I suggest using a backstitch on pretty much everything except maybe the hem.

Tell me what you think of my Enterprise dress! Comments and critiques are well loved!

Oh my gosh I OWN that fabric! I make my fiance a guitar strap cover using it, and it is the coolest pattern ever! The dress is awesome! Great job!

Great job. I can't believe you hand sewed it. I do not have that kind of patience.

This is so much more wow for being handmade, I am very jealous of the fabric, I was raised on a diet of Star Trek!

Such a fun dress, I can't imagine sewing a whole dress by hand.  Great job.
