Late to the party, but your dress is kickass!  I love how everything is coordinated with the red trim -- violin and uber-cool shoes.

Must get this pattern -- I have a gorrrrrrrrgeous fabric that will be perfect for it!   Cheesy

Just be careful to go by the finished measurements for the dress- they're quite exact, and I ended up having to sew the seams a bit on the small side because the dress was coming out too small...oops!

That is VERY nice! You pull off the dress very well.

Almost looks like you'll bash someone with the instrument if they get too fresh with you Cheesy

Ya, gotta give 'em the ol' 1-2 to the solar plexus!  Cheesy

I'm currently working on that pattern with a micro polka dot fabric, but I have been trolling the internet for the best deals on that Alexander Henry fabric (but in black) for awhile. I'm so glad you posted pictures of the fabric made as a dress because I've been wanting to do something big (to show all the tats), and I was thinking either a dress or a skirt with a purse to match. Is it stretchy at all? I'm thinking about doing a for a pencil skirt....

Also, I LOVE the shoes!

I found the best deal on the fabric at Cia's Palette.  (I think if you google it it will come up...) Their shipping was quite reasonable, and they let you order in 1/4 yard increments.  The fabric is a pretty firm cotton, not a lot of stretch.

Those shoes make my day, got 'em for $10 at Burlington Coat Factory!  Shocked

I like yours even better than the others you posted.  The lace is a cute touch.

That's really pretty. We don't have any great fabrics like that where I live (south of england)

I had to order it from "the internets" because nothing I saw in Joanns was really doing it for me.  I like floral prints and all, but sometimes ya just gotta bust out of there!

Again, thanks everybody so much! <3

Thanks for the nice words, y'all are always so sweet here.  Cheesy

Here's a closeup of the fabric, though it doesn't show nearly all the pictures on the print!

I got McCall 4868 this summer but never got around to making it, so I took a few days over winter break and threw it together with some Alexander Henry tatoo fabric that I am SO in love with.  I did view C, and it wasn't too hard, but I knew part way through that it was going to be a bit small, and had to adjust some seams accordingly.

Also, the halter was a little too wide-set so it kinda gapped at the neck line.  That was annoying, so I just made the straps straight in back instead.  I still haven't made up my mind yet about them though, so I just pinned them in and wore it anyway! 

The red is more of a maroon-cranberry color, it comes off a bit harsh but that's because I am not good at taking pictures of myself in a dorm room.  Tongue

Anyone considering this pattern should definitely go for it, the entire bodice is self-lined, so it's nice and sturdy- I was really pleased with the final result.
