Side shot.  Excuse the tummy.

Full frontal

Swingy skirt!

Booty shot. 

The hip area is kind of tight...is there anything I can do about that?  I still need to jazz it up a bit...there's a little puckery place on the collar that I need to cover because I'm too lazy to redo it, but other than that I think I was just going to wear some stringy pearls and toss on a wig for a party I have to go to.  I love dresses like these...they're so much fun to move around in!   Cheesy

I like it simple! Maybe you could rouch the neckline a bit, off center. (Off center may seem weird to some people but I like it like that!) It looks very 1920s. Great job.  Smiley

Everybody likes pink. People who think otherwise are in denial.

Love the dress.  It is super duper cute.  <sigh> I wish I could sew, but alas, I am a lowly fiber slut (knitter, dyer, needle felter, beginner spinner, and soon to be crocheter - oh how could I resist the Happy Hooker). Hmmm...the list is a little short.  Maybe I could add sewing in at that.   Wink

Oh, and by the by, I spent 5 minutes looking for the belly that I was supposed to pardon in that first pic.  COuldn't find it.  It was like where's Wlado or something.  My little round buddha belly is definately more noticable than that.   Cheesy  So...one more time...so pretty.  Wonderful job!

I am interested in personal swaps...and kittens...and rocks.  Weird huh?

it's a very nice dress. all you need is a cloche, some pearls & it'd be a regular night on the roaring 20's town.

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box

That's a really cute dress!  Y'know, maybe I'm just old now (I don't FEEL old) but I remember my roommate in college buying dresses just like that for summer.  Ofcourse this was back in '87 - '89 range and I live in a state not known for its fashion sense!!LOL
