Last year while we were heading to my friends christmas party...i  get to be his date again this year i am so so so so lucky. we decided that if i came this year i would wear a green dress ....not a real green dress....because thats cruel( the cab driver said )....well i ended up having to be cruel and make one just because of the awesome cab.

it became more apparent when fate decided a beautiful green satin thats normally 20 dollars went on sale for 2.50 a meter . so the green dress decided it wanted to come into being .

heres some terrible pictures. im hoping i get a good one with me in it with my friend so i can post it

the top as i was making it. turned out easy to make . MAKE SURE TO CLIP CURVES AND MATCH DART THINGIES.

heres some action shots

me and my best friend

top unattached

plain dress after i attached the skirt

full dress

stupid crinoline...i will never make one again....i will buy one Tongue

the reason i needed the crinoline

the awesome embellishment poinsettia type flower thingie

this dress was Ok to make . seriously next time i WILL clip curves, you would think by now after sewing for a few years i would do this .

anyway thank you for viewing .

Realy this together with the hat is a perfect combination..I think the color green is indeed rather risky for clothing but This outfit is realy great and well done!

That's cruel!  Grin (I hoped that reference was coming after the post title!)

I love it! The color is great and it's very elegant.
