Tada!!!!
I was in a production of Beauty and the Beast, and I volunteered to make the Belle dress. I didn't actually wear it in the show, since I was Babette, but I wore it for this photoshoot, because it fits me too. That's why having a photographer for a father is very, very handy.

The front looks kind of wonky in the first picture, but oh well.

I made it from an EXTREMELY altered pattern. Seriously, the only thing I left the same was the... skirt. And even then, I cut it longer than the pattern said, so I could bustle it.

Side view:


Back!


Those stinking grommets killed my hands!

A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into this dress, but I am MAJAH pleased with how it came out!
Not half bad for a 16 year old, I think! Cheesy
