Hey guys. This is my first ever post, so bear with me  Smiley

Back in Year 10, we had to design a costume. I decided to make a gothic sort of dress, in the style of the TV show Ruby Gloom, which I was obsessed with.

I call it EmmieGLOOM.

I wasn't very good at sewing, or with patterns, and I know I could do a better job these days, but everyone has to start somewhere!  Grin

And I am happy to say that I found my talent and picked sewing up quite easily. I have been joined at the hip with my machine since.

(Not literally...I didn't have some kind of crazy sewing related accident or anything >.O ...lol...)

Anyway, here are the photos from my mini photo shoot back then:

ENJOY Cheesy

Very nice dress and cute photos Smiley I really like the colour of the dress - dark and gothy but not black or red so it's still original. The design is great, too!

Wow, my 1st dress, well, let us not speak ill of the dead. Your dress is 10 to the 10th better! I really like colors. Dark, but not cliche.
