I'd had this lovely sheer turquoise leopard print stuff lying around for ages. I had planned to make a blouse out of it, but I always mess up blouses. Grr.

But then, I saw this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=93311.0 (Zombie Teeth's punk rock prom dress) and I was inspired.

This dress took quite about two days. I kind of used a pattern. 'Kind of' in that I had an old dress pattern, but it was missing some pieces, so I had to guess a few bits. It's got plain sky blue material underneath. This is the best and most ambitious thing I have made all by myself, I'm so proud of it.

Anyhoo, I love it! I just need some tit tape to avoid embarrassing myself, haha. Going to wear it out next Tuesday night... I can't wait!

Wow, what a pretty blue dress, Dissolvedgirl! You know, that bag you have hanging from your mirror is a perfect accossory for it, too.  Wink I like leopord print; especially BLUE!

Yes, you really have a knock out new dress! Enjoy it fully!  Cheesy

don't think of this as a period... think of it as an ellipsis.
