1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / The Romper of My Dreams on: October 04, 2011 11:02:16 AM
Several months ago I had a dream I was at a store and I saw a romper with a black sweetheart top and ugly/pretty floral bubble shorts.  When I woke up I thought "Hm... it's not stealing the design if I DREAM it..." 


It has pockets!!!!

It took me a while to find the right fabric but I'm pretty pleased with it!  I think I'm going to make more with different fabrics and maybe sleeves.  *oh my!*

It was also my first attempt at draping.  I've always been scared but after checking out a few how-to videos it's surprisingly easy.  The top is a pattern I've used before and the shorts are 100% draped.  Here you can see the pleating details of the front and back..


later kittens,

I've made corn, black bean and rice burritos packed with an ice pack.  They are fairly easy to make the night before and wrap for lunch tomorrow. google turned up a bunch of recipes.

Gor-ge-ous dress! Scarlett O'Hara (and Maria von Trapp) would be green with envy.
Haha! YES!!! Totally.

Thank you all for your kind comments. @magentarose I did use a pattern...


 But I kind of knew what style I wanted and used the pattern to get the look

Wow that is amazing! How did you come up with this idea?

I bought several home dec sheer fabbies for about $3 a yard on JoAnn's red tag section and I've always wanted a frilly poofy dress that used sheer fabric.  It's girly and feminine but still a little flirty.

correct me if i am wrong, but that looks like a dress made for frolicking!  ....or at least i would frolic accordingly.  great job!
And yes this dress is for frolicking, galavanting and general skipping about purposes.  Grin
