I finished it! I finished Riley's Easter dress! And you'll never guess what I named it: The Riley Dress. I am "that painting elephant of being awesome." (Anyone know the reference?) Well, even with a terribly un-creative name, I'm in love with this dress.
Remember how terrified I was because I didn't want to mess up on such lovely fabric? Well, now I don't have to cry myself to sleep! It has plenty of ruffle-ness. :)
The overskirt is, yes indeed-y, another remix of Dana's circle skirt. I wanted to do something else with her tutorial besides a skirt, to show off whatever skill(z) I may possess. I split the front of the skirt, and I edged the entire skirt with a 3-inch ruffle that has both (finished) edges exposed. That ruffle is about 400 inches long. Yowza, that was a little work.
The underskirt is a hot pink ruffle fabric. Ow ow! :)
Looks like I'm not the only one who's giddy over the dress.
We're just all-around silly over here. :)
Now we're ready for Easter! But so we don't forget what's truly important... Praise the Lord! Good Friday is dark, but Sunday is a-comin'!
