Or something like that.

I bought this dress a couple of weeks ago and I loved it so much that I decided to make another one!!!! It was suprisingly easy to make, because it didn't need a zipper, just some elastic in the back! Cheesy

Here is the dress I bought:


And here is my version!!! I did everything basically the same as the bought one, except the pockets. I plan on making them soon.


I need some opinions, with or without the belt???

It got kinda complicated in the bust area, because it bunched up in all the wrong places, so I ended up just putting darts. Apart from that, I'm pretty pleased with it, and the fabric only cost me $3 (Australian)!!! Grin

Please tell me what you think!!!

P.S I'm 13 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

That looks great! I love the fabric of the one you made. I vote without the belt though because there is already alot of bows going on with the straps. But either way is still wonderful!

I don't think you need the belt. This dress is very pretty as it is. I really like the bottom hem!

that's very cute! I really like what you made better than the one you bought! The back elastic you did looks so cool. How did you do that?

Elastic: There are two strips of elastic in the back. One of them is inside the top hem and the other one is sewn onto the fabric about 2 inches down (I think it's called ruching???).

Dishwasher182: Hahahaha!!! It's basically the middle of summer where I am (Australia), but it's actually not that warm, just very sunny!!!

And thanks guys!!!
