I made my dress for my sister’s black and white themed wedding. The shoulder section was very loose and awkwardly shaped, so I cut it down a lot. It seemed like a good improvement until I’d been wearing it for 10 hours and it started to feel too tight on my arm. Oh well, it’ll be perfect for a date night when I only where it for a few hours. I added a matching bow belt, made by following Tilly’s tutorial: http://www.tillyandthebuttons.com/2010/06/bow-belt-tutorial.html
The fabric is a cotton blend with a little stretch. It’s black and white like chambray. I would love to have more of this fabric to make pants with—it would be perfect for fitted pants.
