    That is such a good idea! Adn great matching across the front. A simple idea, with knockout effects!

    This is much nicer than the original (which I also really liked!) and so clever! Amazing!

    thank you quineveresmon, i wanted to do something different with the stripes? i was going to do something with the horizontal and vertical and then i though ah ha lol i’ll do the wave. i like how it turned out and it looks so different. i made this dress in black with aztec print and also white and red. its a great pattern. i had to a dd 3 inches to the lengh and i lowered the neckline. x

    I would never have thought to do this dress in striped fabric, but I love how it turned out.
