i made my date's suit too.

in 3 days.

he's way too cool for a normal tux.



this one shows my 4 inch pointy zebra heels.



and the back view shows my buttons, not zipper, and large pink bow. and the gloves i was wearing for like 5 minutes.

the suit was pretty much improvised. it was made with a hideous and unflattering old prom dress from the thrift store. it was very rushed, so it could have been much better if i had time. my dress was made with a vogue pattern (it was based on a vintage pattern circa 1957...the number was 2962 i believe?) and it turned out really good except for the fact that it was 2 or 3 sizes too big. my measurements were in between sizes and i picked the smaller one...so there doesn't really seem to be a reason for it...anyone else have this problem with vogue patterns? this one specifically? patterns in general?

there's plastic on the furniture to keep it neat and clean,
in the pine sol-scented air, somewhere that's green...

hmm that's a good idea - using an old prom dress, for your date's suit. and you didn't use a pattern for it? incredible. It sculpts his booty very nicely Cheesy
