Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Iron Craft: Leopard halter dress (Black challenge)

Oh yeah. I totally went for it.... (now updated with the end pics)

Ok some of you may go what? with the fabric. But for some reason I just loved this fabric and it was next to nothing as it was a remnant fabric sale. And usually I am not a fan of green either. You all know I am a pink girl! But I decided to use it only as a part of a dress (and not an entire dress). So it is all good, I promise! I selected this pattern that I had in my stash that I have not tried yet. Used my standard size 12 (which is a 4-6 in regular clothing). I may have put on some weight in my mid section but I think it will work!

This pattern has multiple options. I selected the halter with ruffles, shorter skirt with no inserts. I also opted for the belt part. I was going to use the fabric for the halter and ruffles and also the belt. I just had enough fabric! Yay! 

The under stitching part on the halter was really hard. Otherwise, the pattern was super easy to sew.
I also cut off a few inches off the bottom. I thought it was too long.

Here is my finished dress!

Here it is without the belt.

I don't like it without a belt. It is too high for me.

That is a super hot dress. I like it without the belt though, actually I like it both ways, it is surprising how different it looks with or without it.

Thanks Cat! yes it is very different one way versus the other. The belt is a pain to deal with though. It seems to move down while I wear it. Got to figure out a way to fix that.
