London Calling - Is Sewing an Olympic event?

I wish it was...this dress would be my gold medal effort!

It is Farbenmix "Ventura" and it has some fun design elements. I liked the curved hem of the skirt.

Plus, this lent itself very well to mixing fabrics (if you have seen my work, you know I love that!) and adding embellishments.

I went nuts with the embroidery machine with this one: I got the "London Calling" double-decker bus, and crown appliques/embroidery from Huups.de - the tiny Tinkerbell silhouette was stitched out in metallic gold from Frou Frou by Heather Sue and the Olympic rings were a free download. Mickey Mouse with the Epcot balloons came from a seller on Facebook. 

For the back, I added to bias loops to feed the halter straps through. I figured that would make it more comfortable for her.
