Here is the dress:
It is not exactly perfect but I am very proud of it!
Cost: $1.95 for the zipper! I already had the pattern, zipper, dress fabric, and lining fabric.
I didn't want to go out and purchase $10-12 worth of fabric for an experimental dress so I looked in my fabric stash to see what I had and there was enough of this blue floral fabric & solid cream (for the lining) to make a dress. The fabric is from curtains in my old apartment! When we moved I changed color schemes and had no need for them! (Of course I made the curtains inexpensively out of simple cotton fabric so it's not like I made a dress out of drapery fabric!!) I am calling the dress my Scarlett dress!!
You just can't beat $1.95 for a cute little dress with an even funnier story!
