This year I'm throwing a wonderful and fabulous Anti-Valentines Day Party at my favourite bar and so I figured its as good a reason as any to make a new dress and bust out my beloved dress form, Esme, that I got for christmas. She's a sexy sexy dressform but I haven't made anything on her yet! Damn uni, gets in the way of the important things in life.
Anyway, the dress. I wanted something very happy widow, very alluring and devastating but not pink and happy and in love because that's not the point! So I made this dress, it took a couple of days. Its black drill of some kind with chocolate brown faux fur collar and satin bias binding on the bottom. Im thinking of throwing together a little hat with a net veil for tomorrow.http://www.goodbye.nu/images/finished2.jpghttp://www.goodbye.nu/images/finished1.jpghttp://www.goodbye.nu/images/blackwidow1.jpghttp://www.goodbye.nu/images/blackwidow2.jpghttp://www.goodbye.nu/images/blackwidow3.jpg
I'm wearing a petti with it to puff it out a bit to get the balance right.
Sorry the pictures are so crap! Its stupid o'clock in the morning and I just finished dying my hair and I wanted to post it before I went to bed! I've got to get up early tomorrow to buy black roses to hand out to people.
Happy valentines/anti-valentines day!
