    It really pops out :) Very bold choice of colour, works out very well. And it really looks like paper :) is it one piece or skirt and upperpart?

    i love that you named it after a she and him song, and it looks very zooey deschanel. i don’t know if that was on purpose but it fits =)

      I’m glad you caught that :)
      It was definitely inspired by a Zooey dress that she wore on Craig Ferguson. I am trying to make the bodice tighter like the one she wore though.

    beautiful! have you used a pattern? and how have you let it poof so much? I mean, I’ve never seen such a ‘poofed skirt’ and it really looks like paper

      I used an old bodice pattern I had from a croquis kit then I made the skirt without a pattern. I cut it extremely large and gathered it as much as I could.
