One Yard Challenge

I entered yet another patternreview.com contest...the one yard challenge.  For this contest I decided to make a shorter version of Mimi G.'s maxi dress.  Btw, this is a great tutorial...very easy to follow and the dress is very easy to make.  I used fabric I've had in my stash for a long time because it was a remnant and I had no idea what to do with it.  Here's my dress:

I found the perfect beads to add to the ties at Joanne's:


 I plan on wearing my new dress this Friday to Chi Cha Lounge for my pre-graduation celebration with my 3/4 sleeve denim jacket (times like these I wish I had a khaki jacket) and my fave sandals:
