Rockabilly Dreamgirl by shinga Rockabilly Dreamgirl by shinga
Last night I had a dream that I was at some store and found this dress. Instantly I dropped everything else in my hand and desperately wanted this dress. When I woke up I was like "... omg" and went to draw it.

No idea if this is an actual dress I saw somewhere and just dreamed about, or my subconscious decided it wanted to be a fashionista. Either way, FUN DRESS.

Also, I did those polka dots by hand because I'm a bit dumb sometimes.

My cousin has a long-skirted dress that looks a lot like this. A LOT. She made it with a friend.

I can Volbeat in my ear right now. Their cover of "I Only Wanna Be With You" would go well with this image. :D

Its a real dress, seen it quite a bit around certain circles, and the pattern's in most fabric shops.

Well, maybe not the straps. But the idea! Its a very nice dress when it turns out.

It always amazes me how well you remember your dreams. Well, remember enough for inspiration at least.

OK, I'm a guy who doesn't cross-dress and I think that's a pretty great dress.

That is awesome. And I love the hand drawn polka dots and wish more people would do that. If I dressed in dresses, then I would wear it too.

best way to do dots and stripes are by hand, they might not be perfect or even uniform, but at least they add a wealth of depth!

The closest I came to was this one. Just take the flower off and repurpose a pair of black straps and VIOLA! You have your dress.
