Next up: New Year's Dress

I picked up this pattern on sale recently. It's another of Vogue's "let's make this pattern up in a fabric so that you can't see any of the details" collection. 
 The line drawing shows how it has a billions pieces, all with princess seams. I decided to cut out a 6, to make it snug and because waiting tables has made me skinny again. I lost 1"-1.5"- 2" from my measurements.
 I don't think I even posted about this fabric from an estate sale. They were all severely overpriced, so I only got this one piece. It is knit fabric and I didn't realize until later that it was a 2 yard long tube of fabric.

It is grey and white with gold sparkly thread woven in. It's design reminds me of one celled organisms. I think it will be a slightly flashy, sexy dress. Whoo hoo!
