Again this is a dress that came together over time. I LOVE IT!!!! It is overly comfortable FUN and sexy. It has a pocket. It ties together at the top. I made it from leftovers from the pop break top and some new and thrifted fabric. I made the fascinator to go with it. I has some issues with the dress but I think I worked all the kinks out on the bottom of the dress I used a heart stitch. I made the back of the dress longer. I feel like I need to party in this dress!! I did not use a pattern. The under arms I had the most trouble with and it looks like it sticks out in the photo, but when you wear it, it’s not that bad.
update: I did wear this to party in!! I went to the Reverend Horton Heat show in winter and was in the mosh pit and kicked @$#! I wore it with black tight and black flats with a black little winter coat. It totally held up!!
