im still in, but my mom threw away the cardigan so i'll have to find something else....   
NEXT QUESTION!

THIRD QUESTION!
do we want a new thread for the pics or do we just want to keep using this one???

i think thats all.......  thanks to everyone who wants to get in on this, i was beginning to get depressed when it seemed like no one was gonna reply...

I know I want to see before/after pics.  I think we can just keep this thread going.  I've never done a craft along though.  Do we have a deadline at all?

I'd be happy to post the ugly dress right now -- you can see it's potential.  We can post the recons here too -- there aren't too many of us, are there?

Here are two shots of the dress.  The first is it's full length hideousness.  It's far too roomy at the bust and arms, the waist is unbearable, the dress has no shape, and yet there's a flirty twirl of fabric at the knees.  Amazing.



Here's an upclose to show you just how pretty the fabric is and just how mind-bendingly awful the black elasitic casing is:



I forgot to look to see if there was a tag.  I hope I am reconning some lable, and no someone's home-sewn jobbie.  The sewing's actually quite good, and the fabric, a light rayon, is lovely.  It's the shape that's so sad (well, plus the sausage casing in the middle).

Woot!  I am very excited about this recon!

Holy crap!  That looks like it would be about the most unflattering thing you could possibly wear.  Why did someone decide that was a good design?

Good luck with that dress! ^^

I dunno if this is against the rules, but a bunch of my recent recons (all tanks) are here~

I don't think you are too late.  I havevn't even started my recon yet and won't until at least next week.

everybody who wants in PM me so i can kinda get an idea of how many we have
sorry if im being anal but this is the first of anything ive gotten together on craftster (or any web community for that matter) and im gonna try to keep everything running smoothly........
QUESTION!
should we have a cut off date for joining? and/or a done date to post after pics???

i think possibly the cut off date for joining, but not the done date, cause you never know whats gonna come up....
