Cute! Love the fabric. Love the style. Looks good on you. I'd like to see pics of the zipper layout also. I just can't wrap my head around it but it sounds VERY interesting. I want to try it.

Looks great! I'm self conscious about my arms in sleeveless stuff too, plus I can't wear sleeveless at work, so what I do is wear lots of very lightweight little shrugs/cropped sweaters over my tank tops and dresses (usually made of jersey). Burdastyle has some good patterns that can be easily modified to make little light summery cover-ups. I also have a Big 3 pattern for some shrugs. Just thought I'd share! I think you look great in your dress though, and I really like the fabric, it was meant to be a maxi.

oh yeah, this dress is so versatile. You can wear white, black, silver, red, or pink shoes/sandles with this...there are so many looks you can get with this style of dress and your fabric choice. Again, great job!!!!

This is very cute, very couldn't have made a better choice in fabric. This is an awesome dress and for the price you made it, it is a steal. This is a designer dress that would have cost $$$$ in a department store.

Love your dress! I had this all ready to sew but as soon as I got the fabric home I didn't like it anymore, so it became fabric for muslins! I'm still on the hunt for just the right fabric for it. Your version is inspiring!
