At my school to as a requirement to graduate, the schools have decided to make the class below me, 2010, complete a Senior Project.

This project includes, but is not limited to:
 - 8-10 Page Research Paper.
 - A Solid Thesis gained from Research.
 - A Completed Relevent Product.
 - A 5-15 Minute Presentation in front of a panel of judges.

In my AP English III class, we were given the pleasure to be the Guinea Pigs for this project.

For mine I chose to research Victorian Fashion. That part was interesting enough...

But the real interesting part was my product, for this I had decided to sew a Victorian Bustle Dress.

Hours upon Hours of work... No Fun!

But I finished, and I'm almost positive I passed with flying colors.

Anyway, here are some pictures.

My Loverly BFF - Xiao Fu.

No lie, one of the judges thought this picture was taken back in Victorian Times in Asia... I had just taken it the day before he saw it. I laughed. lol

I just wanted to share, hope everyone likes it.

Oh, and that is awesome that the judge thought it was a vintage picture.. I would have run with it. Hahaha Grin

It looks great Smiley  What's the back look like?  Did you make a bustle?

Unfortunately, your photobucket album is password protected, so we can't see the rest of your pics!

That is wonderful work!  I have no doubt you passed with flying colors too.  Would love to see a photo of the back (bustle area) too.  Your friend is a lovely model.
