OMG, thank you soooooo much MonkeyThumb, that's some really good advice, I'll definitely take it on board!!!! Thanks. Cheesy

JBoo: No, it has no zipper. The way I did the back was by sewing two strips of elastic onto the back of the dress and when I was sewing I stretched the elastic so when I let go it kinda 'bunched up'. If that makes any sense at all?!? (I think it's called ruching?? Or something like that!)

Thanks everyone!!! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I'm going to buck the trend and say that I prefer it with the belt. And I'm in awe of your drafting skills! My one attempt at copying an existing garment resulted in a rather peculiar-looking sack.

This is great. It looks fantastic and reminds me of Betty Boop. It doesn't need the pockets, though they would be handy.

This si definately at least 30 times better than the seming I was doing at 13, nice job Wink

 Roll Eyes so cool. i wish i could do this. and your only 13... i can only imagine how completely awesome you are going to become! i thought that was impossible. lol.

anyways. i like the belt. but i agree with the whole "maybe a white one"... or you could do red, since that would lend it a very nautical kind of feel (red white and blue seem to be those colors.) and nautical is in... i think. i can't keep track.
