I found this really great jersey knit at Hobby Lobby (it's still there as far as I know).  Anyway, there was an Irish band coming into town again, and I kinda have a thing for the guitarist, so I wanted to look good, y'know?  So while I was watching a couple Twilight Zone episodes, I whipped this baby up.  I laid a dress with a similar cut atop the fabric and snip-snipped.

It gets SO humid here in summertime; I wanted to make a dress in which I didn't have to wear a bra.  Plus I LOVE plunging backs and v-cuts, so I incorporated all of that into it.  I had some hot pink thread laying around from a previous (unfinished bellydancing) project, so to finish off the seams I did a decorative stitch.  I used some loop braid that's probably 30 years old (I shop at antique stores a lot) as well as decorated ribbon I also got at Hobby Lobby.

I don't normally just post one project per topic, but I really dig this dress.  It works every time.  (Plus that band is performing nearby tonight, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed I can get a ride out there!)

Yowza! Hello ladies:

Very cute.  Makes me wish I could get away with not wearing a bra!  But seriously, with a few modifications to hide aforementioned pesky undergarment I would totally wear this.

I love the print, the dress looks totally hot on you! The guitarist would have to be blind not to think so too! Good luck!

Never underestimate the power of suggestion.

I am interested in personal swaps for fabric and quilting squares. PM me if you're interested!
