that is amazing! the fabric alone in some fancy shop would set you back about $50, let alone a finished dress like that... it's gorgeous, and exactly my style, too! Smiley

That is beautiful! Smashing job.

Regarding tulle vs no tulle... I'd go no tulle. You could always do a lightweight petticoat if you wanted the extra flounce, but I think it's darling as it is.

all of you are so sweet.... i WISH i had gotten a chance to even wear this dress but alas, while i was making it i was steadily getting fatter, so i won't ever have the pleasure of zipping it all the way up. now that i think of it, it was a nightmare to make this dress! it fit when i began, then i had to add to the sides to widen it, which helped for like a day, but in the end it was still too small.
if anybody has a solution to this problem, i would love to hear it.

that dress is amazing.  I need to work on my bedsheet into awesome clothes vision.  I love the colors.  I would leave it as is.  Perhaps a pettycoat that stuck out of the bottom an inch in either an olive or pink like the ribbon would be nice, but that's the most I would do.  Really if you didn't mess with it and simply wore it with some classy vintage accessories (green pumps, clutch purse, etc) it would look splenduberous.  Sorry about it not fitting, but for a dress that awesome  I would say it's worth resizing again.  you said you added strips down the side to make it wider?  so just pretend like you did that on purpose.  I bet it looks quite nice.  anyway, good job.  keep it up.
