Here's my version of the dress by Pink Hickey (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=252249.0)
Thanks so much for the tutorial pink! I definitely learned a lot - and i'm working on another that's strapless (we'll see how that goes!) and has a round top instead of triangles, if that makes any sense. I'll definitely post when that one's finished.

sorry there are so many photos... i was just really excited!

my friend and i were wine tasting to buy wine for an upcoming wedding that we're going to. i was very happy to be getting some vitamin D and show off my new dress!

Here i'm showing my surprise to "find" some "congratulations" signs hidden in a grape vine. Smiley

A slightly better picture of the dress (maybe) but i look really frazzled for some reason... i think it was just a really long weekend...

last one (i promise!) with a sneak-peak view of my matching bag that i made (the lining is the same fabric as the dress!

Comments/advice/criticism welcome! Thanks everyone for looking!

I love it!! I saw the bag first, and they go perfectly together!

PM me about ChaCha. I swear, it's not an ad. I just saved myself on bills with this, and thought I'd try & help =]

Wooooo hoooooo!!!!!! Yes yes yes! I looooove it. It's a good vitamin D dress. I really like that retro-ish flower print. I can't tell you how happy I am you tried it and it worked! I can't wait to see the strapless!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

awww, thanks! I really appreciate your help and writing the tute! I've made a few dresses from patterns before and some terrible shirts that are totally unwearable - but this was pretty easy and super fun and i think really taught me about how to make non-pattern items in the future!

as i said before, HUGE learning experience but a great one!

Wow, well done you. It's utterly gorgeous and I adore that fabric.  I am going to have to have a go at this one. A bit worried about the bust darts though, never done them b4  Shocked may have to skip that bit  Cheesy
