Random!

The other one disappeared! So I'm starting another one...I remember this being my favorite thread, haha. So here goes...we're having a formal dance in 3 weeks and I'm making my dress from scratch - it's insane asylum inspired! Woo!

Hmm I wonder why the other one dissapeared!?!?
Oooooh I'd love to see that when you've made it!!

I'm thinking on making a dress for my friends wedding - not a wedding dress, a dress for me. Something formal, because formal or cocktail dresses are either expensive or not in larger sizes. And if they are they are hideous.
So I'm thinking on making something myself.

Have fun at your dance btw =D

I made a wedding dress once, Moll Flanders inspired with a tight boned corset and a big old skirt, with an overskirt and drapey things on the arms. Came out rather well if I do say so myself=)

Thanks I definitely will! Next weekend I'm going shopping with a friend for her dress, my fabric, and some new makeup...colored eyeliner is my newest obsession haha.

And yay for making wedding dresses! Sounds super cute Happy

I've been kinda not making things lately...I just recently started back up again making jewelry and hats, small things like that, so I'm excited to be making more clothes again.
