okay, so there are no strawberries on the dress. but i always want to go strawberry picking when i wear this.


the fabric was, like, a dollar a yard. i made the bias tape trim and found the buttons for the straps in my button pile. i think i ended up paying around $5 for the whole shebang. it's hard to tell, but there are tiny pockets on the front that have little red bows on top.

for those of you that saw it, this dress is reallll similar to my previously posted dress, which was the pink and white polka dot happiness with heart buttons.

eh, well, you can't see it, but the bottom is trimmed in red and hits about knee-length. and yes, i have three irons. i'm a big fan of dumpster-diving.


close-up of the top. sorry about the boob shot.


pockets! also a better view of the fabric.

Very nice. Did you use a pattern for this? I want to make a dress with pockets. A pocketed dress.
