Great dress! Looks like all the fitting work really paid off. Love the skull fabric!

Really cute. Yes, you need a petticoat :)

Very good fit. Front bodice lays nicely, I like the height of the neckline, armsyces seem perfect. A fun fabric!

Love it! Congratulations on your results. The fabric is so fun. Sans petticoat is much more wearable for modern times, and is a nice look.

Bravo to the original dress designer, it is so unique, yet functional! Your updating it with little skulls is a hilarious juxtaposition to the original goodie-two-shoes style. Bravo to you too! I would love to get my hands on this pattern!

Very lovely. I was drawn to the sweet print and then saw the skull motif-nice.

This is wonderful! Great combination of pattern and fabric- I love those whimsical Alex Henry cottons and this is an excellent use of them. The lines on this dress are very flattering. Beautiful work. Thanks for posting!

This is SO cute! the skull fabric is totally adorable, and I love the character it adds to this dress. I think it looks really good without the peticoat, too, still lots of body.
