My Fall Ball dress started out as a a wedding dress I got from goodwill to take my senior pictures in:
I knew I wanted to make it into something I could wear for Fall Ball my freshman year in college, so I grabbed some navy, lime green, and fuchsia fabric dye, and some brushes, and went to work with the cream colored satin as my canvas
Then I decided to add a black halter top and a rhinestone pin in the middle:
A week before the dance, I decided to be a little ambitious and turn my long elegant gown into a short bubble skirt with pickups. I was up until there am the night before the dance finishing it! But it was so worth it Here is the final dress!
I was really happy with how it came out! I had never sewn in pickups before. Glad I decided to make it instead of by Now I have to figure out what to make for spring fling! Comments and criticism welcome!
