This dress is made out of upholstery fabric that I found at Walmart for like $2 a yard. I loved it so much I bought up all they had (about 3 yards)
As soon as I saw it, I knew it had to be a dress.

I made this dress from scratch. I suck at patterns!
This has my first attempt at a contoured bust and an invisible zipper (unfortunately I couldn't get a pic of the zipper)
It also has a drop waist and a small pleat at the front of the skirt.
I put in a few darts so it fits like a glove

i was just looking back at the pics and realized that in some of them the dress looks kinda wonky.  Angry
