Reference Picture:



My Result:



I hate pictures of myself so I set a timer on my camera and this is the result, me looking like I'm walking like a dinosaur. But this was the best picture of the dress. And it looks kind of blue-ish in the picture but it's actually black. The effect I used when I edited the picture (I hate raw, natural pictures for the most part) caused it to have a blue-ish tint on the dress.

This is the product of reconstructing cheap ugly thrift store clothes. I made this dress from a plain black XXL shirt and a pair of ugly silky black pants. I used it as part of my Lady Gaga costume for Halloween 2010. I don't think the costume as a whole turned out great but I love the dress. Tell me what you think.
(Also, I'm super proud of myself with this dress because it was the first thing I EVER made on a sewing machine. I taught myself how to use a sewing machine by making this dress.)

Thank You! Smiley My only advise to anyone that tries to make this dress is to find a better way to sew the bow to the dress. I sewed the corners on the inside at the top and bottom of each side of the bow and I sewed the center. It still slouched a bit so I'm going to tweak it some more and see what I can do about it.
