So last week i purchased some fabric: 1 yrd black, 2 yrds white, and 4 yards of tulle to make my homecoming dress...i didn't make it until the day OF homecoming and almost didn't get done  Grin hhahahah i have a bad work ethic yes, but i'm happy with my design! i  used burda pattern 7982 for the bustier top but other than that, it's all my own design.
start with an action shot hahahah





it has a side zipper, and the sparkly thing around the waist is a belt


i literally got done 30 minuets before my friends showed up....nevr again last minute ever! thanks for looking ^_^
