On topic Libragirl - I had my eyes on that dress as well! Was it one of the "easy" ones? I cannot remember. I would love to get my hands on some tattoo print fabric and sew me up one of those dresses with it!  Grin

Just google yahoo groups, on their home page there is a search box to find a group, just type in crafty_way and it should be group #9.

I have that dress pattern too.  I have yet to make it though. Im hoping it will be supportive enough for the girls Grin.    Anyway the number is Simplicity 4581.   Id love to see pictures if anyone else has made it.

Thanks libragirl,    The dress is wicked cute & Ive almost made it a few times.  Maybe Ill try to build a booby holder for that specific dress.   With lots of lycra & elastic Cheesy.

The sewing magazine Threads just had an incredibly great article on making built in bras.  Halter styles included.  Definately check it out, they always have great info.

I was looking at that pattern online the other day after deciding that this summer I will wear nothing but dresses that I've made myself (and maybe shrugs..since I am vehemently opposed to my arms). Anyway, I love love love that dress. Was is difficult?
I'm excited for the pictures as well!

Definately make the dress!!! The one that I made from the cream knit with the cherries fits sooooooooo well.  I am franticly search for more vintage knits to make it from. It hugs the right spots and just skims the not so great parts!!! I made it from knit so that it is a "pull on" dress instead of a zippered one. perfect for summer easy dressing.

I checked the Threads article out and it is worth it's weight in gold! If you have not checked it out - do so soon! Thanks soooo much for the heads up Beppycat. It is a little expensive for a periodical, but worth it! They describe and illustrate the construction really well, got into materials and shapes etc, unlike any other material I have seen on the topic. I find it facinating, ( but I'm weird and my daughter told me I need to get a life.  Smiley ) If you have ever had "issues" in this arena - I highly recommend that you at least go to Borders - get a cup of coffe and read it there .  Wink
