That's why I'd rather put up a site and just post a link here so those who aren't interested can just ignore the link. You can't really ignore pictures in the posts.
hee hee ... dial-up's are for Dinosaurs... get high on High-Speed, is my motto!
Look at this dress on Ebay, # 1704122013. Auction ends at tonite 2-17, 20:41 pm. Same design on the skirt part as this one you made for Anna.
Location: UK, surprisingly....

quote:OMG! I can't believe someone paid $132.50 for this dress. I know someone who has this exact same dress and I'm pretty sure she didn't pay half that. The godets aren't even really chiffon, they're more like cheesecloth.
Ok, here it is, the final picture -- the dress in action! Swivel did the stoning herself, and did an awesome job. You should see the rather art-deco diamond in black and crystal on the front. If I get a picture I'll post it.
Great Job Laura!! I was in Cal. Open past weekend to see this dress in action. This dress stood out on the floor.
You inspire me so much that I am going to make my own dress. My first project is to sew a leotard for a already made evening gown and add circle inserts to make the dress fuller. You might hear from me to ask you question when I get stucked!
Good luck in sewing.
In the picture it appeared to be a black and white dress? My flavorite combination. Good job...
What pattern did you use to make the dress. I am looking for a dress kind like Swival's with 8 panels.
I started with McCall's 3439 but made many modifications to it, as you'll see if you look at a picture of the original pattern. 3439 did not have sleeves, and in fact did not even have shoulders (it's a spaghetti-strap dress). I also changed the neckline and the shape of the back.
I highly reccomend Style (Simplicity) 9033 as a starting point, but they only make that down to size 8. Vogue 8544 is good (starts at size 6). I'm also fond of McCall's 9177, which goes down to a size 4.
All of these make 7-panel princess-seamed dresses, and I just cut the front panel in half (rather than cutting it on the fold) to get 8 panels.
