Today I finished the dress I've been working on!



I used a skirt pattern I made a while ago for the bottom & then drafted a top for it.



The belt is sort of an obi style wrap around thing made of broadcloth I had in my stash.

I've worn it all day & it's comfy & girly!

How awesome!  I love those style of dresses, and they are in all the stores right now.  You really did a great job of matching the fabric with the dress design and it looks great on you.  I love the sash too.

Thanks everyone!

bloomeenee, I don't think I'd be able to do a proper tutorial. Basically, I took the skirt block I made a while ago (you could use any skirt pattern, I guess) & I added the box pleat - then I just extended it up past the waist & sort of combined a top pattern that I've made a bunch of times & like the top. I just kept trying it on & tweaking it as I went.
