I have my IB Art exam next Tuesday, which is basically an oral exam for two years of work. My teacher told us that we should be "dressed to kill", which in my opinion is rather vague, but I would really like to look arty and classy for this.

I have a few things that I could wear, but nothing that I'm completely in love with, which brings me to the question: Which of the tutorials are around have you found to be easily done and/or could easily be adapted to something more formal?

I've looked through the archives and have a few ideas, but I've never actually tried any of them, (though I have some experience in sewing), which is why I'm asking for advice! Thanks in advance!

I think the assymetrical corset style top (on completed projects:general, I think) is really cool and artistic. It would definately make an impression

See my website for my products (will post to anywhere in UK at cost of postage and packaging). It is a little out of date due to a server crash. Please email me if you want a custom order

Oooooh, IB exams, fun stuff (haha, not really.  But good luck!)
But like Randommarble said, you could make some sort of corset-style top and pair it with some black slacks or something.  Oh!  Or there's this one top... if you can find some pretty fabric, it would be absolutely awesome!

There's a link for it somewhere on Craftster, but I can't find it right now. 
Good luck with both the exam and looking hawt~!  -Karin
