OK what did I do on Dec 31st 2013? I jumped on the leather bandwagon  and so glad I did. The most interesting aspect of my dress is the fabric. I got the fabric from Wal-Mart about 4 years ago, and still can't remember why I had just a meter, this really got me thinking what I could make with this small yardage but after a lot of contemplation I settled for my  TNT S2054 (already reviewed in my previous post)  for the bodice and faux leather also from several years back for the sleeves and belt.  I also modified the pattern a bit to suite the look, and love it so much....So what do you think????
