Made by ME: Dress!

I made this dress back in November but it took me forever to take pictures of it and edit them and everything, but here it is! I think it's my favorite thing I've made so far. Wait till you see the back :)
Denim bustier top. 
And JP brought me back this necklace from a trip to North Carolina, I wear it like every other day haha. It's actually backwards in these pictures, I mean it can go both ways, but the other side is a clock and it opens! Such a sweetheart :)
EXPOSED ZIPPER on the back! Maybe it's not as cool as I think it is but I'm loving exposed zippers lately.
Here's my sketch and a closer look at the fabric below.

  11. Wow that is very amazing. I am always so impressed by people who make dresses. I have made a few skirts but dresses seem to hard for me at this stage.
