    Wow!! I love this! I was actually looking at the “Afternoon Tea Top” to make into a dress for Halloween! I wanna be Betty Boop, so I’m HOPING that my finished result will look similar to yours. :) Just a question— How did you go about making the skirt part of the dress? I’m a beginner when it comes to making clothes. I’ve sewn bags, purses, curtains, etc.. but I’ve avoided clothing. lol Oh! And what type of fabric did you use? :)

    i am new to sewing too, and am taking a wee dressmaking class before the birth of my girl, i feel scared yet exited too, and my gosh i must admit i am smitten with how well your dress has turned out, it fits beautifully and suits you to a T :)
