Every year I like to do really unusual photos for our Christmas cards, I start planning for next year as soon as I've sent them out!
This year, my idea involves "formal wear". I have the outfits for the kids and hubby, but I need a dress for myself. I'm thinking something along the lines of like how a royal family's mom would dress...you know all flowing and velvet or satin or something super formal and long. I'll be sitting down with everyone else standing around.
However, I obviously don't want to buy something like this and I've had no luck at the thrift stores (they are charging WAY too much for old gowns!!!).
Any ideas on a cheap, fast way to make a gown like this. It doesn't even have to be something I could actually like, wear
, as long as it looks
like I'm wearing it.
And if it made me look thinner, that would be a bonus-lol! I hate the way my upper arms look, so it does need to have sleeves that go at least to my elbow.
Yeah, I'm weird. But that's why my kids love me. I think.
