My senior project presentation was today, & I had to dress professionally. Since I did mine on fashion design, I figured it'd be appropriate to make my own outfit. Or at least part of it.


I made up the pattern as I went along, & it was my first time working with pleats on clothing. I originally intended on putting a zipper, but I didn't have time, & I'm really lucky that the material I used stretches a little (& that my boobies aren't big). It didn't turn out perfectly, but it worked. & I'm sure it earned me some nice points on my presentation. Smiley

**
It took about 5 hours to make. I'm sorry, I can't provide a tutorial for this because I kept changing my mind about what to do as I went along.

Thanks for looking!

the skirt is amazing and so nicely tailored, the pleats are fab. Im sure you earned many preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'superhappybonusbrowniepoints') with that sexy beast.

i bet the presentation was rockin' too.
