My friendís band, Bird City, was playing in New Orleans this weekend. Since the show was after the Endymion parade, I decided to wear a variation of my costume from that day. I thought it was a fun re-interpretation of my Rainbow Peacock theme!

I made this dress for my 19th birthday, almost 4 years ago! In the summer of 2008 I took the dress in so that it fit very well and shortened the skirt about 6 inches. The fabric is this wonderfully bright teal denim that I used inside out, so the vertical stripes are on the inside of the dress. I actually did use a pattern for this, it was a Vogue shirt-dress.

The dress is accented with teal ribbon, stitching in embroidery thread, and some Klimt-y designs painted on. Itís very comfortable (I love the pockets!) but since itís so bright I donít wear it terribly often. The colors in the photos are pretty accurate.

Here's a link to my Mardi Gras costume, in case you're interested, although since I got the flu I only got to wear it on Saturday!

OF COURSE there are more photos on my website!

Yay for bright fabric! I would so use it do to a skirt if I had some. Great job (:
