Thanks you guys, for all the nice comments!  You made my day Smiley

And Cazness, yes once I dig around and find the pattern I'll try to scan the pattern piece outlines and the pleating instructions.

I adore that! That'd make a cute top as well.

Beautiful. In my opinion the fabric and style go perfectly, but a black silky one would look more formal and evening like and good too.

Cazness,

Procrastination could be one of my biggest faults, yes.  Here are some instructions for how to go about pleating the top part of the dress.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks, and sorry it took so long to do this.

And cheera, just to err on the safe side, I deleted that last post.  Wink

I really really love this dress. Not only is the fabric great in my opinion with style of dress, as they together are unexpected and that makes it great to me. I also LOVE the way you did the top of the dress, the ruffle or pleated part! So so so awesome.  The only thing I might change is the length of hte dress. I think it needs to be just above the knee? Although it looks cute that way, I just think it would look so neat that way too? Great job! 

THANKS FOR THE TUTE ON THE PLEAT AT THE TOP! YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

I have paint all over my fingers and fabric all over the floor. Yeah it was a good day!
