hey everyone, first project post Smiley
this is the dress I made for my grad.  it was over a month ago, I just never got around to posting it!  I used McCall's 5382. The style is not something I normally would have done, but when I was flipping through pattern books it really caught my eye, and I ended up being really happy with it. 
I finished it very last minute - as in sewing the straps to the front in the van on the way. oops.. Roll Eyes anyway!




this one shows the colour better.

thanks for looking! comments appreciated,
Heather <3

p.s. I got some random compliments from people saying they'd heard I'd made it, it was pretty awesome.

That's ADORABLE!  You did a great job on the whole thing - the fit, color all very flattering! 

And - OMG your date's shoes are freaking awesome!

The dress is beautiful, and that color with your skin tone is perfection!

Can you blame him?  Think about it: whose feet were killing them by the end of the night?  Not Evan's! Smiley
