yay! So that's the short version aka here's a cute dress...this is the long version:

OK, so my mom gave me a bunch of old clothes, including the slip she wore with her wedding dress. so...here it is before I started chopping it up...sorry, the pictures are kind of crappy because I had to use my webcam, but you get the idea:




Anyways...chop chop snip snip sew...grommets! yay! I just got a grommet tool and I LOVE it!!!!!
so...here's the finished product, I must say I am really pleased with it, it turned out WAY better than I was expecting...so:




back:






and there was a tiny hole which I covered with a bow! and a little rosebud:



and of course, Mr. Handsome had to help...


 Grin
so anyways, I like it-I think I'll wear it with leggings or with jeans...it's shorter than I expected, but also way cuter, so it's good.
Tell me what you think!!!!!!

OMG! THAT'S SO CUTE! I'D PAY A LOT FOR IT (luckily I can sew myself, though! Smiley) But I am fairly new to sewing and I was wondering is there a trick to gathers? Because I've tried multiple times, and I can't get it!

aww, thanks!  Grin

Gathering is insanely simple, it looks hard, but...it's not. And it's so fun. So...what you do is you take the fabric that you want to be all gather-y and pin it on to the part that isn't gather-y so that there are little folds all along the gather-y part. if you do this, then the gather-y part should fit on the non gathery part...ok, this is making no sense at all...so, I kind of learned from this tutorial and partly from my mom...but, I used the last method, only without measuring the pleats exactly and ironing them and stuff:

anyways, I really hope this helps, sorry if it's just confusing...it's kind of late and I just finished watching the Presidential debates which gave me a headache  Tongue
maybe I can explain it better later when I'm less tired  Grin

Anyway, thanks, everyone!!!!!
