Tie-Back Dress

Added Apr 21, 2008

Dix Hills, New Y...






I made this dress in a five hour rush of creativity. It’s my third piece, and it might be my favorite. I love the material, its a great pattern, and I love the design. I made this dress without a pattern. And it only cost about $4 for this fabric, and I still have about a yard left.

Material Notes

Cotton patterned fabric, thread, elastic.

    Wow! this is a great dress. the length is really good and it is very practical! the fabric is amazing and it is so great to be able to find fabrics for so cheap, you just have to really dig them out! :)

    This is a gorgeous dress you’ve made! congratulations. It’s similar to one I’ve been thinking up in my head for weeks, apart from a few details and completely different fabric. keep those creative rushes up, they turn out great results!

    What a cute summer dress! I love the fabric , and the fact that you didn’t use a pattern is awesome. Great job!
