finally a sucessful recon!!
i had a black tshirt just chillin' in my drawer, and since i had been banned from going to walmart last night(its another story) i decided to do something to it, i also had this stretchy lace tank top that i think i stole from a sister..and some large and small pearly buttons...and i thought...what can i do with these....

ooh i know
this:








sorry if the pictures suck i had to take them with photobooth on my 'puter cause my camera batteries are dead... and some are from last night and others are from today, but yeah thats what Eleanor(my sewing machine) and i accomplished last night... but yeah im proud of it and it makes me feel really fancy!

I love it! I saw a dress with a neckline like that when I was a kid (on Star Trek... betraying my nerddom here) and always wondered how you could do it in real life. Now I know!
