the dress

so this is how the dress was made..
it started with a Amy Butler Pattern:
lotus-tunic and cami
 laying out the fabric with the pattern
 and more cutting
 uff da! that was a whole lot of cutting
(total side note- jods, krissy- does this rug look familiar?) 

after all the cutting the sewing begins! 
a dress and a liner was sewn
liner- me 
sewing on my moms ancient singer...
my liner all finished
 i now give you a

i love how it turned out- it is so much cuter than i had imagined
i love it on- super comfortable
the sewtropolis grand opening was a hit by the way- 
here is a pic of all us employee gals
 (minus one & owner nikol is in the turquoise dress) in our "red dresses" and turquoise tights (store colors) of course- i made flip flops to match

 what a fun time- 
a million thanks to my wonderful-talented momma for all your help- 
it would not have been done with out you- xoxo

are you inspired to make a dress yet?
