As I told y'all yesterday I am out of the competition, but that doesn't mean I can't still play along.
I think I could have rocked the competition this week!!! 
I don't sew for myself very often and I post pictures of myself even less.
But when you love a dress as much as I love this I just couldn't help myself.
I am soooo glad I decided to pamper myself.  I really should do it more often. Every Mommy should!
I started with a pattern for a top. I used the basic shape of the top but tweaked it to my liking.
I added length to make it a dress. I decided to go with a Hi-Lo hem.

The front was just cut straight across. I tapered it down in the back.
Next time I'm going to start tapering on the front of the dress so it flows better.

All of the fabric started out a light cream color.
One of my favorite things was ombre dyeing this dress.
I started by mixing a super light blue color.  I soaked the whole dress. 
Then with each step darker a raised a portion of the dress out of the dye.

I dyed 6 or 7 different shades of blue so the color change is very gradual. 

On the front I made some rolled roses and hot glued them onto felt. 
I pinned them to the top front of the dress.
It was the finishing touch this dress needed.

Tomorrow I will be sporting a new haircut. 
I am so excited!
