soo i made this the other night instead of sleeping. i didn't use a pattern or anything, just sort of.. did it. my spiderman tank (posted on here someplace) was practice for the top, except it had ribbons instead of a zipper. the bottom is pleated and there's a really long (not too visible in the pics) bow sash in back. i bought light green tulle and even pinned it on, then decided i wasn't feeling quite as poufy as i had anticipated. i'll probably sew the tulle in when summer rolls around and i have real opportunities to wear it. so far i've only gone out in public in it once, to school (and let me tell you, i was ambushed. the school nurse called me "color city" or something and started a conversation about sewing your own clothes and being an individual, etc etc. i was like, that's fantastic, but i'm bleeding here..)
aaanyway.
the mirror shot.

the backside mirror shot (harder than you'd think, my friends.)

please ignore my plumpness..

sash.. sort of..

look at me, i'm sitting like a porn star. whee.


so, yes, my childhood fixation with unicorns has finally been translated into crafty craftness. and kitschy girlness. but hey, that's what i'm here for.

give me your eyes, i need sunshine.
your blood, your bones, your voice, and your ghost.

we've both been very brave.
walk around with both legs,
fight the scary day.
we both pull the tricks out of our sleeves.

but I'll believe in anything
and you'll believe in anything.

Plumpness?? My Lovely, you are not plump! and you work that amazing dress SO well!
I'm in love with the fabric.
AND, I'm incredibly impressed that you made it without a pattern (sorry if that sounds patronising). I can't make a bag without a pattern.
