So well done! I love the versatility!

Thanks everyone! This pattern really is very easy- you all should give it a try! Folding/taping the pattern together took longer than making the dress itself!
@schnerby: The fabric has gold glitter dots- I thought it was perfect for the holiday!

@TheManicCrafter- Thanks! I actually found the fabric in the clearance section of Jo Anns for a few bucks a yard (I think $3/yard)!

Hey Craftsters! I have posted the same dress pattern in the past (I used a zebra print last time), but I cranked out this little gal right before a Holiday party with my family and I was just smitten. The first one I made, my mom taught me how to draft facing for the sleeves and neckline, but this time I just used bias tape, which made it much more polished looking on the inside. The pattern is from burda http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/anda and I omitted the draw string for the waist, but tailored the pattern in just a bit to make it easier to wear with a belt. The belt in this pic is just a ribbon from Michaels that I finished the ends with some snips and fray-check.

This is amazing! Kudos to you!
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: IS criticism NOT ok? on: March 16, 2011 09:28:55 AM
Constructive criticism should only be given if a poster asks for it. Period. After that, there really isnt an excuse for being an asshole. If you dont like what someone is posting, and they have not asked for your opinion, keep that shit to yourself. The internet doesnt require you to reply to anything.

Everyone, regardless of size, is at a different place with their bodies and how they've learned to dress it. Style is about evolution and if you are actually making those clothes, its about learning to sew the most flattering cuts you can. I dont think folks can thrive and feel safe to experiment if they are afraid of being attacked (which, if you are making uninvited comments, it is an attack). Additionally, every fashionista worth her weight in gold knows that fashion rules are intended to be broken. So, sweeping statements about what I can and can not wear, especially from someone I've never seen post photos of themselves in their creations- can GTFO. If I wanted snarky, body policing comments about the clothes that I spend lots of time and money making, I'd FED EX Joan Rivers my soul.

Cute skirt- I love the button detail and the stripes of white stiching at the bottom!

Also, for anyone interested, heres a tute for a high wasited gathered skirt that I've used, and its easy to add in pockets!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / A line gathered (dirndl) skirt- with pockets! on: February 16, 2011 04:21:26 PM
I 99% finished making this skirt a few weeks ago for my Recycled Fashions class, but I put on the hook and eyes wrong, so it had just been sitting in its own tears and lust since then (my clothes lust to be worn). Today was the day that I resurrected it, safety pinned the back and I headed to the library to study!

Tutorial via http://www.blogforbettersewing.com/2009/08/full-gathered-skirt.html: Free
Fabric: $4.99 for 3 yards @ Goodwill
Thread: Free to me (my mom already owned a mega huge spindle of navy)
Zipper: 2.99
Hook and eyes: Free to me (mom already owned them)
Total cost: about $8!

You can read my full post about it on my blog http://bearlyonearth.com/2011/02/16/ootd-heels-and-zippers/
