Hm mm, like the others I can't explain why your friends don't like it  Huh

I think it's both a good choice of fabric and of the pattern, because not anybody can wear a fabric with such a large-scale print. You have to be tall and feminine built so I am a bit jealous, cause I am to small for these kind of prints!

I hope your so-called "Monstrosity" does feel loved now  Wink

Your friends are jealous. WEAR it!

And use that pattern over and over. It really works for you, and you've got it all road tested.

i have to agree. the dress is great and looks great on you. and now, because you already know how to handle the pattern (or what's better not to do) i'm sure you could skip a few steps for the next one  Wink

I love it! The print looks super pretty and retro and the dress pattern suits you. I agree with some previous posts, your mates are just jealous if they can't say anything nice. You totally deserve some praise for the effort alone in completing your project. Nice work!  Cheesy

The dress looks wonderful on you, that explains why the friends don't like it. You friends just can't handle that you look hotter then them in this dress and they know you will be the one getting the attention instead of the them. Wear it proudly!

What a cheery flattering dress! The nipping in of the waist makes you have such nice curves without being clingy.

My take on the friend situation: (going by your username) While it's got a very retro feel, it's not really a psychobilly print, so it may just be out of character. I know I'd get funny looks from my friends when I would show up at shows still in my khakis and pink workwear, it's probably just not their style.
Doesn't mean it's not an awesome dress. Which it is.

Also, are your shoes in your icon from Iron Fist?? So jealous.

honey it's sooooo DARLING! I can see it paired with big orange and yellow flowers in your pretty hair! Here's just a thought, maybe save some time by using a slip instead of a lining? I often have that debate with myself...do i put in a lining or just wear a slip underneath?

That dress is gorgeous!! The fabric is absolutely fabulous (not to mention that you look GREAT in orange Wink). Also I love the bodice of the dress. I don't really know what its called, but its so cute and vintage. Great stuff!

Also, yo friends are straight up trippin G!! Its a great piece so wear it proud!
