grrrr.....mine is 3/4 done and my sewing machine quit on me!

I swear I have the worst luck with machines...this is my fifth one thus far (I've owned machines since I was about 18 - 9 years) My vintage singer was a beauty, but not worth placing the one plastic gear every month (pricey)
My brother (X-mas gift) needs a timing fix, and I haven't been able to afford it, and now my NEW singer needs a timing fix too! (all machines prior to these three were CRAP)

I'm just using a plain black mystery fabric I got for pennies at a garage sale, but I'm sprucing it up with hot pink ribbon Smiley The fabric feels like a rayon/poly blend with a little something else in (not sure - maybe viscose?) and a slight crinkle to it.
I WAS making it to go to the bar for my birthday, but didn't get it finished in time, so ended up wearing another dress I made the week prior that was in an almost complete state (call me lazy - I HATE buttonholes)

I made this dress last night and I have a potentially stupid question.....when you wear it as a strapless dress with the band around you waist, do you have openings under your arms? I don't know if I left the slits open too much or if I am doing it wrong, but i have openings at the sides under my arms.

Thanks so much for putting this tutorial together!!

and more detailed instructions here: http://bspoetry.blogspot.com/2008/07/le-sac-dress.html

I will be making a couple of these, some shirts too.

I was looking at picture 1, without my glasses on mind you , and I was like, "Oh my god, she's showing her..........oh."

i put the slits so that there is one in the front and one in the back, and it takes a fair amount of adjusting before i get it holeless.

ohh! thank you so much for this tutorial! i've been wanting to make this dress for such a long time, but could never really figure out if it was one slit or two... or how the strings worked. i knew it was basically an overpriced square of fabric with a casing hem. but that was it. this clears it up marvelously! hopefully tomorrow i can finally unpack my machine and boxes of fabric so i can make this. Perfect for summer coming up!
good work!
