This year I decided to make all my own formals, but after making a nice homecoming dress I got bored and wanted something a little less traditional.
A couple of years ago I saw a t shirt wedding gown in a craft book and promptly forgot about it, untill I saw this: http://www.stylehive.com/bookmark/tshirt-ball-gown-522617
I instantly fell in love it, (who wouldn't?) but it costs a lot of money I don't have and fits a body that's a far cry from my own.
so I drafted my first pattern and came up with my own version:
That gives you an idea of the whole dress, but the bodice is a little wrinkled. I have hideous posture.
back lace-up detail (the ribbon says happy birthday on it..this is what happens when you live in an area with but one craft shop)
bettter picture of the bodice
The theme was masquerade, or something like that, which we translated to mean over the top sunglasses. I do not know how we arrived at that conclusion. It may have something to do with the fact that we are awesome.
Also, I feel obligated to mention the gloves were actually 1920s gloves. (eep!)
