I didn't read all the replies but I wanted to tell you great job and you look beautiful and your sewing skills (at age 17-ish) far surpass mine (at age 40-ish). Pink and brown go together. Pink girls look pretty in brown and brown girls look  pretty in pink.

Pretty  Kiss She'll love it. I still have a lot of the things people made for me when I was a kid.  Well, my daughter has them now.

Wow, those turned out really well and you're a sweetheart for making them. Thanks for the link. We don't need chemo caps, thank God, but we do need some winter hats.

I vote leave it, because it's perfect as it is. I think there's enough going on with all the different fabrics that it doesn't need anything. Anything added will make it "cutesy".

Oh wow, that turned out great.  I'd wear it anywhere. Don't change the dress.  Just keep whatever shoes or jewelry you wear with it kind of plain.

Smiley, I tried cannibalizing a bra to sew into the dress, but I can't figure out how to place the cups! I'm sure it would be much easier if I either had a dress form or another set of hands. Do you remember any tricks you could share for the actual sewing in of the bra?


I'm not Smiley, but I had to chop up an old bra for parts when I made my bathing suit.  What I did was, I put the bra on, put the suit on, and then carefully pinned them together while they were still on me. The pins were on the outside, but after I took all of it off, I repinned it from the inside.  I basically ended up sewing the whole bra in except for the straps.  I sewed the cups in, sewing right on existing seams to secure the cups.  I only sewed the back to the suit on the sides, so that it could still be adjustable for monthly fluctuation in boobage.Then I used the ring and slider thingies from the straps to make the bathing suit straps adjustable in case I got to feeling slutty and really wanted to hike up the girls  Wink. The bra was one of those unlined underwires in kind of a stretchy jersey fabric.

I haven't had time to use the halter dress pattern I have, but I plan on using a variation of the above method for the dress since it worked so well on the suit.

That's awesome!  The shoes will sell themselves if they let you wear it to work.

Great job, and it looks really good on you.  I can't wait to try that pattern.
