I absolutely love how this dress turned out. I followed the how to for the bust of the heat dress for the top, but otherwise came up with the design as I went along. The zipper color doesn’t quite match because I originally planned on using a different fabric. I came across this fabric for just a few dollars at the White Elephant sale in Oakland and knew it would be great for this dress. I also made a bow headband to match. Now all I need is a party to wear it to.
Floral print fabric, 9 inch zipper.
