A couple of years ago, when I was in college, there was an inauguration ball for the new president of our school. I was broke, and I needed a dress that fit. So instead of selling my kidney, what I did was buy a silky night gown and hand sew (my sewing machine was at home that year) some scrap red fabric onto it to make it into an acceptable dress. I put capped sleeves on top and a floor length bow on the back. I didn't get to really finish the edges on the sleeves and the bows because I ran out of time, but I think it still came out pretty nicely.



This is the closest I have to a picture of the bow on the back sadly:



C&C welcome!

I love your color choices.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

Thanks! It was inspired by a prom dress I had seen earlier in life that was white with a bright red waist-cincher looking part. That's why I went with a white nightgown, and I just happened to have a lovely brilliant red fabric on hand to use for the bows and such.
