The Yellow Dress

While I was in Maine on vacation, I went to Portland, and saw this dress and immediately fell in love with it, but not with the price. After some quick searching on Craftster, I found rostitchery's version and tutorial, and set to make my own.

I changed the skirt to a simple A-line, and also had to run some elastic through the waistband because apparently I'm not very good at measuring my own waist. I found it was easier to loop the elastic through the band if the band were 2 or so centimeters *shorter* than my waistband, so the ends don't meet. That way, if it wears out, I can also cut it out and put in a new one.

In spite of myself, I think it turned out rather nicely.
