So this past week, I was at my usual Christian Music Camp, and we usual have a formal dinner and social mixer. This year I decided to make my dress, and it wasn't finished until the day I left for camp!  Smiley My mom had to hem it by hand for me, which I must say looks wonderful, and I thank her for it. So here it is:


I am the one on the far left.

And here's a semi-close up with one of the counselors, and my best friend:


All the jewelry I wore, I made. And my friend Erin (far left in above picture) wore a pair of earrings and a necklace that I made.

I had a fabulous time that evening, and I felt glorious!

What do you guys think? Thanks for looking!!!

I really like it.

The style is super cute and I LOVE the fabric.

Your look real pretty!

Nice jewelry too.

May I ask if the formal was at a country club? It looks almost identical to one my highschool formals were held at.

Nope, it was held at camp. Pocono Plateau. That building behind us is called the Springer Center, and is the dining hall. It's the newest addition at Pocono Plateau, so that's why it looks so nice compared to all the other buildings.

I made that same dress in a green floral print.  I however had a bit of trouble w/ the bust, and I sort of can only just squeak into it up there.  But yours looks really nice.  (my mom hemmed mine too!)  I also love how you made jewelry to go w/ your outfit.  I do that all the time!
