What materials did you use? Vintage 70's mod cotton fabric I scored on Ebay and some crazy matching bias tape I found at a thrift store.

What are you most proud of? I altered the bodice to fit my little top and it fits like a dream.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do it! It has 4 pattern pieces if you eliminate the facings and use bias tape. Super easy and fast to sew up!

Wow. Awesome fabric choice! I am tempted to try it because I am not the greatest seamstress and four pieces can't be that bad!

Me too---I'm learning, but am still pretty impatient. This was so fast, I almost couldn't believe it!

It's fabulous! I just bought the pattern, I've been looking for a copycat of my favorite dress made by Retroliscious and I think this is pretty close. Can't wait!

Fantastic! Enjoy sewing the fastest dress in the universe! You can chop the neckline down like I did, or leave it higher so it's more like a boat neck. Happy sewing!
