This is the first thing that i made that looked like i bought. It turned out amazing considering i worked on it 2 days before prom and the day OF prom. I'm really freaking proud of it. I bought a dress weeks before. I only bought it because my sisters and mom were being pains in the asses so i just picked one that looked decent so we could go home ( we were at the mall for 5 hours). my sister talked me into getting red shoes (the dress was navy blue) for some reason i agreed. they didn't match at all (i told my date to get red so it would bring out my shoes). a week before prom i decided i hated my dress and went to the mall to look for a cheap one. there wasn't anything good. disgruntled, i realized "HELLO DUMMY YOU CAN SEW". so i ran down to joanns and spent roughly $65 on a dress compared to that stupid dress i bought which was around 170. GOOD DEAL. i didn't tell my mom that i was making a dress so when she saw me in it she was a little aggitated that i had a different one on i said i made it and i'm wearing the other one to graduation which is true. then she started screaming "what the hell?! it looks soo good blah blah blah" i got tons of compliments that night on the dress too.
hope you like!
