too pink dress?

Added Jun 22, 2010

I knew when I bought this fabric that it was too much on the pink section for me (I have some pink issue since I don’t remember when) but I love stripes so I got it anyway.
I try to put a navy exposed zipper to make it look a bit less cheesy but I still don’t know if I like this dress or not…
and I also think I’ve made it too short for me, maybe worn with leggings I will be able to go out in it?

    I really like how you styled the direction of the lines and the exposed zipper. I actually have a vendetta against green and I have no idea why…colors. Great job on facing your issues! :)

    i love this, and as a fellow pink fearer, i would totally rock this… the zipper is the key :-D

    C’ on, its beautiful, and it fits you perfectly! How can u not wanna wear it ;-? and u can totally wear it without leggings (although for winter a pair of dark navy blue tights would b nice ;)) Did u use bias cutting method 4 the sides of the top? thats so smart!

    navy zipper = awesome; i agree that it works to take the emphasis off the pink
