So once again I decided to make my homecoming dress. This time my mom and dad helped me sew it on the machine and I sewed up some parts, such as the lace neck and zipper bottom by hand. This was SUCH a challenge. We started three nights before the dance and worked only during the nights. I went to the dance with an hour of sleep left.

Front and Back:

My date and I:

(I had to make his tie fifteen minutes before he came to pick me up due to a huge misunderstanding lol. And for the first time making a tie, it turned out great. He kept saying how I MADE his outfit so cool and he called me Ashley Armani. lol And everywhere I went at the dance everyone kept complimenting me on how I made my date's tie. He had gone off boasting to everyone he saw xD he's so cute.)

Here you can see the lace neck a bit clearer:

Thanks for looking!  Wink

I love the lace top, i'm thinking of making either a shirt or a dress using that kind of an idea. Sexy but not naked. LOVE.
