Wow this was a lot of work, but tons of fun!!!  I started with three super ugly moo moos (about $15 total), cut them into strips and sewed each strip together to make my own "yarn".  Then I designed the pattern, doubled up my homemade "fightful frock yarn" with some nice grey silky yarn and crochetted for a few hours until voila!  the goddess gown was born!!  It's the most comfortable, cozy, sensual dress I've ever worn! The pattern is done in a fairly open stitch, so I'll wear a grey slip under it.  The gown has got a lot of weight to it, and the bottom of the dress really kicks up when I walk, it's almost cartoonish!  The dress is for my husband's Christmas party, and I'm so excited at how it turned out!!  I hope everyone likes it as much as I do!


THE FINISHED PRODUCT!!
