Last minute inspiration and the need/want for a new 'little black dress' led to this!
Impatient me forgot to take before pictures (argh!) 
The beige part was a button up shirt that was too short for me.  The ruffles ran vertical on each side of the front of the shirt so I just cut off the front panel(?) and used it as a top.  The shirt itself was pretty thin, so I had to line the bodice with another panel of the shirt, using the back piece.  It's plenty snug so I don't have to worry about it slip-sliding.  Wink  The bottom part was just another dress that I didn't like the bodice of.  It was sequiny and wayyy too low. 
I actually started off with a completely different plan for it, but ended up with this.  For once, I'm actually thrilled with the improvisation.  It doesn't usually end up wearable... Undecided  Enough jabber, here's pictures!


love how it looks with the fur stole

This is a great job, but I love the way the final photo came out. That retro polaroid feel sets the whole piece of to a tee!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Yeah, both the beige fabric and black are stretchy.  Yay, no zippers!   Tongue

I love it! It has this very old school vintage retro look with the stole and yet totally fun and flirty without. Very cute and great recon!

I find that crafts are very good time wasters. If they aren't for you, then you are one of those rare individuals who know what you're doing!
