thanks everyone for the wonderful compliments.  i'm glad its such a smash hit.

shewolf- i had to fiddle with the dress until i felt comfortable enough to wear it in front of my mom (and out in public) so i wouldn't be giving peep shows everytime i twisted my upper body. i originally wanted the tips of the diamonds to meet in the back but that would have resulted in an extremely low back (not cool) so i seamed the edges of the diamonds together until it was high enough on my back to keep the fabric in place. i also raised the neck part a few inches than originally done, which made the dress more fitted around the boob area.  this also made the waist more bunched, which i didn't like at first but its a necessary trade off and i kinda like it now.

xveganettex- the back is the result of all the extra fabric.  the fabric of the dress is basically three diamonds and playing off this way the fabric is patterned i connected the bottom two diamonds along thier edges and it created a sort of bustle-like appearance.  looking at the dress laid out on the floor you can see how its a wedge shape with a slightly stretched bottom right corner.

ehh...i hope this helps...it makes sense to me.

first off....I LOVE JENNY!!! (and rilo kiley)... i've been listening to her album continuously for the past 3 weeks...ever since i stole it from one of my friends.

secondly...dress looks like a basic prom dress. i think i actually had to wear a dress like that for my high school chorus. simple fitted empire waist.  it looks like there are multiple layers of the flutter sleeves. but in the picture on the inside cover of the cd book it looks like a funkier sleeve than just flutters...like a giant pouf sleeve thats been bunched up her arm. i wish i could be more help...good luck!

i LOVE this dress.  It is very special to me since the fabric was given to me last year by one of my dear friends who is now serving in the peace corps in togo, africa. I waited a long time to make this dress until i was sure i wouldn't screw it up. ((its my own design so i made a practice dress to test it out, which turned out awesome btw)) it started as a queen-size flat sheet and turned into the most fabulous thing i've made yet.

^the neck clasps with a gold cuff necklace

here's the basic shape.  it's basically a single seam up the back with a zipper (and clasps) and a tie around the neck.  It is fully lined with a rolled hem around the bottom. all the edges were top stitched around the "arm holes" so they'd lie flat.  it was originally planned to be shorter but i wanted to preserve as much of the beautiful fabric as i could.

its extremely comfortable except for the necklace.  its not a very heavy dress but it digs in funny at the back of my neck.  i originally had a ribbon (seen in some of the pics) but it didn't match the mood of the dress and i really like the gold.  any suggestions on what i could change it to that would still be the same color but more comfortable?

i'd replace the stripes down the sides into patchwork of other corduroys....or use turtletrbl's suggestion to use a larger/louder print. also, the fuzzing should calm down after a while.  btw, i love that color green!

27  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Re: Apron top pattern or tent dress pattern? on: January 13, 2006 10:57:09 AM
i'm not sure if this helps, but i've made a few apron top-type things
heres a shirt i made: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=31477
and some dresses: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24299
the shirt one is open in the back but instead of sewing a panel to the top part you could sew a skirt to the top (bodice) part (like i did for the dress, only shorter)

i made a tutorial for how to make the bodice.  it always shrinks the image so i'll just post the site.  i hope this helps, msg me if you have questions.

oh my god, that is AMAZING!  i wish i had your talent for knitting (i'm still working on mine).

what a great idea for learning the parts of the digestive system.  every anatomy class should have one of those.

Also, my boyfriend's friend wrapped some red wrapping paper around his torso, put on a green bow, and then a gift tag that said
"From: God
To: Women."

that is so awesome....and i'm still laughing
