Just realized I never posted this here.

Tardis dress I made for my roommate.


Cotton fabric from spoonflower, with blue bias tape.  I can't remember which pattern I used for it.  But I made the wrong size, so I had to take in the seam allowances and add a stripe of blue bias tape in the bodice.  I think it turned out cute anyway.

I really wish Spoonflower fabrics weren't so costly! It's so pretty.

I know, this is the only time I've bought from them, but it was a special occasion.  :-)

The pattern you used is similar to one I have traced from burda magazine. Anyway, the dress is simply gorgeous!! You combined a fan fabric with a classic pattern design and the result is just perfect!!

I have to try to find this material (or something similar) to make a dress like this for my girlfriend. She's a HUGE Dr. Who fan.
