I finally took some pictures of my dress with my favorite way (thus far!) of tying it!  Sorry for the horrible mirror pics.  Undecided  The dress looks so much better in person.

(I didn't feel like having a face today.  Wink)

The color is off in every one of these pictures.  The color looks like this:

Thanks so much for the awesome tutorial, rostitchery!

All right - I gotta know how you tied that. It's awesome!

If at first you don't succeed, go buy more fabric.

It's soooo simple.  I just tied a strip of scrap fabric around my neck and folded the dress straps over the front of the scrap.  Then I just wrapped the tails of the straps around my underbust area a couple of times and tied it in a bow in the back!  I hope that was clear enough for you guys to recreate it!

AHHH--another way to tie the dress!!!  OK--gotta dig through and find scraps of my dress to make a little tie now....so, fold the two top pieces over the tie and then just wrap the ends around and under the bust...I think I will play around with it...

this is a great site because we get to play with our dresses every time someone comes up with something different!!!

One of the other sites also shows a similar style using one of the neck-wire style necklaces.

Here's mine
Finding the fabric took 5 stores because none of them carried knits. I finally found a grey stretch fabric for only 2 dollars a yard. The cutting was actually easier than I though but sewing it was a pain because the fabric kept stretching. But it looks fantastic right now. I can't wait to make another one.
