My very first dress!

I made it around Dec. '08 to Jan. '09, but I never got around to posting it here. I used clothes such as a sort of pencil skirt, two rather large purple skirts, a pair of super small pants from who-knows-when, some black lace, old buttons, and an old white shirt. All came from my neighborhood thrift store.

Hope you like it!
