summer dress

this is a dress i made over the summer and am just getting around to picturing and posting it.
during summer '10 i was really into the sailor theme like many other fashion fans, everything
red white blue and the in between blue and white i.e. navy sky blue royal blue ect.
i made the pattern for this dress by measurements paper and mixed up memories of pattern making.
i like the buttons and the zipper, the bodice is lined with a thin cotton, also the waistband but not the bottom.
i really like how stiff the fabric is it makes it look like doll clothes or something.
p.s. sorry it's been so long, so i will have a work space again but since we left japan no sewing machine. :(
