my spring break just started [yea i know, kinda late] and i haven't made any plans yet, so i decided to make a dress. since i'm too young to drive and my parents have to work i had to use stuff from around my house. i happened to have a pattern that my sister was going to use for her prom dress but didn't. so here it is:


front


back


back again


close up on the back

it's supposed to be a zipper on the side, but i cut open teh back and used velcro since that's all i had. the velcro is under the 3 strap thingys that go across the back.

i just made this for fun and don't really plan on wearing it. so what do you think?

edit// tutorial for the back is on the next page

"No," said Pooh humbly, "there isn't. But there was going to be when I began it. It's just that something happened to it along the way."
