Thank you random! Im planning on making another one but i just cant decide what colour(s) to have in mind when im fabric hunting. I think i will disreguard the pattern again and just put it together my own way. I may also make the skirt less full depending on fabric. I think it will go much faster if i  ignore the directions Smiley

Anyone else started this?

Schmooey, gorgeous dress!  You look hot Wink

Im planning on making another one but i just cant decide what colour(s) to have in mind when im fabric hunting.

Make another dress that matches a scarf you have.  The two go great together.

so I forgot my fabric has a pattern to it and a circle skirt woudn't work because the apples would end up sides ways and upside down and all that. So I cut some trapazoid type shapes.
My fabric is SUPER thin so I'm trying to decide if I should line the skirt now or wear a slip under it later......I'm not sure I want to do the extra work of lining it now but I think the end result would look better...

I didn't want to make this just by looking at the pattern.  When I seen the dresses that where posted, I loved it!  I am planning on using this pattern to make a cute summer top.  By the way,  I LOVE my dress!

Oooh....love it. Everyone's dresses are so great. Alas, I'm afraid mine won't fit...Hopefully I will have time to put the zipper in today and see. Oh I hope I hope I hope....

I did it!  I used pattern 4826 to make a shirt!  It didn't come out exactly as planned, but I am happy with it anyway.  Maybe I will make another one!

I bought fuschia and orange plaid seersucker fabric to make this dress!  I'm excited!

Approx how long did it take y'all to make your dress?  I haven't really looked at the pattern yet.

mine took me the better part of a weekend to myself, interrupted by 8-hour long sits of World of Warcraft. In straight hours, i have no idea.  It did take a while though.

I worked on mine for about 3 hours one night, and another 4 or 5 the next day. A lot of that was fitting.

Okay, I'm finally ready to post my results.  I had to make this dress, like, twice ... because I SWEAR I followed directions and the pockets ended up in the front of the dress ... so I undid the whole thing and moved the pockets more to the side.
