so i am currently a freshman in college, and had to apply this semester to get accepted into the fashion design program at my school. it is super competitive (of about 100 applicants, they take 38), so to make myself stand out, i decided to make a crazy dress to go with my portfolio. i designed this dress and bought the fabric months ago, but about 2 weeks before my portfolio was due, i hadnt even started on the dress! so luckily i ended up being stuck in my dorm room for a week because of snow so i used that time to crank out this dress! i drafted the pattern, and sewed the whole thing myself. each of those ruffles was hemmed by hem, which is what took the longest but i am happy i took the time to do that because it looks perfect up close. anyways, here it is. and it did get me accepted into the fashion design program Smiley!

Congrats on getting into the program! That dress shows off your dedication and does pack quite the punch (in the good sense) for getting noticed. The color and the design are lovely Smiley

Super fab!  I am really loving the tiered ruffle trend that is going on right now, and this is an awesome play on ruffles.  Congrats on getting into your fashion design program!
