making my own dress...

i kept myself busy yesterday making this:
a dress! a spring dress! inspired by all those dresses at target with knit tops, wide elastic waist bands and cotton skirts. {with my own twist, of course} i can't bring myself to buy one when it seems so easy to make
as per usual, i used the trial and error method. fool proof! almost :) 
{i hate using patterns}

 i used an xl gray tshirt i got from a thrift store for the top. although it's not actually a dress. i went to sew the top and bottom together and decided i kinda like them separate.

cause now i can change the top if i want.
and i'm lazy.

i also decided to leave the edges of the tank raw, so after it's washed it'll curl up a little. and now that it's posted, i see that this is really just a photo of my right boob, but what the heck- it is my blog!

i love it! i love the waist-band material, and best of all, it's really comfy.

i've been working on a couple other things too, but not nearly as cool. i'll show them off later. and...
i've got something great planned for tomorrow, so make sure to come check it out!

  5. Way to go! I've not seen these dresses before, but then again I don't get out of "kid world" much, but I'm sure yours beats the pants (or skirts?) off of Target!
