thats just about fantastic and a half. I'm pretty sure i would have gotten about 1/2 of a 1/2 of a 1/2 of the way through the halter top and destroyed it in an impatient rage.

Thank you everyone for your amazing responses! It's such a joy to know that people really love it. Thank youuu.  Cheesy

To the question a couple of you asked, to get the dress on and off, you have to pull it over your head. [Lots of deep breathing, fun stuff.]
I was going for simplicity and making it without some form of a zipper may have been easy to make, but putting it on however... Haha! It wasn't really that hard to do. It's not good on the dress, because it stretches it out a little, but it becomes easier to put on and take off the more you do it.

Also, I got interviewed today from someone from a local news station that just may want to do a story on the dress! It's so exciting! I'm just so happy it's done and I know I actually accomplished something wonderful.

WOW.  That is ridiculous how awesome your dress is!  I'm not sure I've ever seen a dress so classy and elegant AND re-use before.  Bravo.

I was on CNN.com and I saw an article about you and your dress!

You are amazing, and my hero! I've been saving tabs for this, but my progress has been halted... and now, by posting your beautiful dress, I'm inspired to take up mine again! You look absolutely incredible. And your shoes! I love your shoes! Can I ask where you got them?

Oh... wow... this is amazing! Beautiful shaping and the colors are awesome. Pop tabs would take a while, great work.
