This dress is super comfortable, and once you put it on you'll dance and twirl your days away. :D

Think about how cute with would look with a denim jacket or navy cardigan sweater.......The whimsical fishy print and would be great for work or play. It is also super comfortable.

The fabrics used in this piece entail some fabulous 100% cotton I rescued from an estate sale and boy was I happy to save this fabric from a landfill............<<<<<It had been in a fire of a fabric store back in the 1970s. Luckily, most of the fabric is usable, but on the center fold there is some permanent blackness.....Fear not I double washed all of the fabric and cut away the unusable piece areas......All except this wee part in which the bodice is lined in. ****These is a wee black line that is COMPLETELY unvisable when worn or folded up. You can only see it when you are looking at the inside of the halter straps....It does not in any way affect the quality of construction or design of the dress. I just wanted to be upfront and honest. If you would like me to e-mail you a picture, just send me your address in a convo. :) ....phew! Now that's out of the way, let's move on to the fun.

SO the rescued fabric entails navy blue fished on a white background, while the other fabric entails a nice light weight solid apple red.

The dress features a self lined halter bodice that ties behind the neck.There are pleats to form cups for the bust. I also created a couple of loops of fabric to slide up and down the straps to help with support. The dress would look great with out these, but I love options! Don't you?

The natural waist & underbust entails rows and rows of smocking\/shirring\/elastic stitching. It allows for loads of comfort and the perfect pit each time.

This dress is EXTREMELY spinny and full. The top tier alone is huge! The consecutive tiers are also gathered and the final hem is finished with a lucious full red ruffle.

The most exciting thing about this lil number is the obi belt I created to go with it. I used a heavy weight red cotton for the lining and the coordinating light weight red for the outer fabric & ties. I also used heavy interfacing to give this belt sturdiness. I quilted completely around & across it for more detail....It looks great with the ties in the back or wraps around & tied in front.

The black tube dress is not included in this listing, I just wanted to you all to see how verstatile the belt is as well

GEEZ! Sorry for the wicked long post. I just wanted to be thorough.
