my mom has an insanely large back stock of fabric. the honey bear dress was made out of left over fabric from a little jumper my mom made for me when i was 7. it was one of the first things i made on my own and the dancing bears reminded me too much of the grateful dead, whom i'm not so wild about, so i added all the black to take the rainbow right out of that. i wanted to line the bellies in an arc too because big bellies and belly buttons on a body-con pencil dress is hilarious.
