A few weeks ago, I went to Hobby Lobby to get an easel. I left Hobby Lobby with four yards of fabric, a new dress pattern, new needles for my sewing machine, and no easel. Thus, the space dress was born!

Upon opening the pattern and beginning to cut out the pieces, I discovered that it has pockets. I fell in love all over again!

I also love the collar.

I made this dress from Simplicity pattern 1755. Thanks for looking!

super cute! love the fabric and the dress pattern, you did a great job. Last year i moved and I no longer have a hobby lobby near me, and I hate it but in the long run I figure its probably a good thing because I have so many trips like the one you described where i went in for one thing and came out with 12 other things that had nothing to do with my original plans.

I've been cleaning out my fabric stash recently and i found some space fabric with a very similar pattern, of course my first thought was "this needs to be a dress" but then I thought it might look goofy, but seeing your dress look so awsome i think i've been inspired to turn mine into a dress after all  Grin

Thank you, and yay! Cheesy I'm glad to have inspired you. I bet it will look awesome! I love using unusual fabrics to make dresses and such. Smiley

This makes me think of Ms. Frizzle, and that makes it somehow magically more awesome than it already is! That pattern looks so great! I love that it has pockets, and the fabric is just perfect!
I am sure you'll get that easel eventually Wink
