I started this dress ages ago, botched the top of it and I finally got around to finishing it a few days ago. It's not perfect but its one of best clothing items so far. My pattern. I used some cheap  $1.50 a yard fabric from Walmart so no idea what it is, but it stretches just enough to not have a zipper. I have some left over and I'm not sure what to do with it, it might be enough so a skirt but I think two items of clothing with the same fabric is repetitive. Any Ideas??


sorry for blur



the back:



It's probably not everyone's style but I love it. I wore it tonight to a Johnny Cash tribute concert in the park, in the heart of Folsom (yes that Folsom, from Folsom Prison Blues) which was a lot of fun. ^_^

This dress is the essence of summer session in college. Cool, fun, casual but argyle always represents collegiate-ness to me.

Love it and I so would wear it. Maybe the left over fabric would make a cute tote?
