Okay, So. This is my first post as a member but i've been lurking since the dawn of time. I've been making clothes since I was a little kid , nonwearable mind you, and i wanted to try my hand at a girly little empire waist bubble dress. Something that I would venture to wear outside with out the fear of being stoned to death, or fall apart.

I made the blouse part from some (god knows what kind) thrift store fabric that smells nauseating when ironed. Any guesses? Its very gauzy and delicate to work with. I'm curious to know whether or not it should be on or around my skin.

The skirt part is technically a recon since i fashioned it into a bubble skirt from an old skirt that used to be really long.

here she is...

Wonder Twins Power, activate! In the shape of Outfit!

And apologies for the janky picture quality. My camera fell in the toilet the night i wore this dress out on a drunken gallivant and its life was subsequently ended.

RIP Nikon, we barely knew ye.

Its not living alone if you keep a rifle under your bed.

The higher the fauxhawk, the closer to god.

Very impressive. And hey, aint nothing wrong with getting a little stoned. haha.

Anyway, fantastic dress. My only critique is that it would look way way way better without the bow on the waist band.

Keep it up!

Yeah, i thought the bow was a bit sketchy too. It was an ill conceived idea stuck on at the last minute! I'll rip that little sucker off probably.

Oh it's very cute indeed and I love your commentary!!! But I do agree it would be better without the bow on the waist Smiley

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Very cute! I really like the color combo and the neck line!

Yeah, I'd leave out the bow, it looks cute enough without it,  but I really like the lace on the neck line, I think it looks great and comfy too! Well done Smiley

sad about your camera Sad
The gauzy fabric could be some kind of curtain material?
I love the lace.

Adorable dress! I especially love the top portion with the lace and buttons. As for the bow, I love bows and they belong everywhere, but I do suggest you make the bow out of a heavier fabric than lace so it looks sturdier

I wasn't so sure when I saw the pics on the hanger but the one with you wearing makes it look really awesome.
It looks kinda vintage but modern at the same time. I love it!

I love the whole outfit! It's so pretty!
