Fantastic dress! Great job!

I too am totally upset that they are taking the servers down to fix things. Why can't they just let things stay broken? I don't care if I can't move due to lag or if quests are bugged. If I leave my room my mom may make me get a job.

haha I do the planning thing to - right down to imagining in my head how to sew pieces together ( after I've designed and cut out the entire pattern in my head also)

I love this dress! great job!!

I dislike store-bought patterns, so I drafted my own pattern for this one - actually it's a pattern that I made and have used on a lot of other dresses, all I did is change the neck line.

The first two pieces are the front pieces (cut two of each), and they are very tricky because you have to line up two opposite curves (lots of pins) and sew it (I use a quarter inch seam to reduce unwanted gathers).  The back piece is pretty much a rectangle with a little extra triangle added at the side.  On the dress I added the triangle seperately because I realized that the dress was not wide enough.

The bottom of the dress is just rectangular panels measured to be twice their normal width and then gathered to the right width (+ pockets).

I hope that helped!

Thanks so much for taking the time to take a picture and explain a bit! This dress is super cute, and hopefully I'll be able to work on one too.
