This dress is my pride and joy. It took two and a half years of both planning and construction. I can't believe it's actually completed!

I owe majormajor credit to jad2004, who posted the first ever Pop Top dress I ever saw back in 2006. Her dress was my inspiration and I even used the same type/color of stuff to weave the tabs together. [Ticker Tape. If you ever want to make a dress out of pop tabs too, I'd recommend using something else. It works good, but I'm pretty sure there's better for this.] The pictures of her dress aren't online anymore [sadface], but my dress looks similar to it.

Another person I would like to give credit for inspiration is Dark Seraphim. The bust portion of my dress came out of staring intensely at her's. [Her dress', not her real bust. xD]

There are so many beautiful pop tab dresses out there and I think every girl should make one! It's such a wonderful experience, making it and wearing it and I'm so happy I got to accomplish this! It takes a lot of patience and a ton of work but I know it was worth it all in the end.  Smiley

So, without further ado, PICTURES!
