Here is the muslin one, as far as I got. I first tried the real version in organza, but since I was going for white...it looked bridal, or bridesmaid-like. I decided on poplin...and when I had it all done, Rob said it looked like I had a sheet wrapped around me!
Here it is! I added a black rolled hem to the bow, and I really think it helped the sheet part. The sleeves were slightly difficutl, but the scariest part was the invisible zipper. I dont know if I did it right, but I did it!
The bow takes awhile to tie right. It looks slightly different everytime I put it on.
I like how the back swooshes to one side. It isnt perfect by any mean, but I love my little creation!
So the best part...it cost about $20.00 to make! I ordered the pencil skirt from banana and it fits well, which is good because I really didnt want to have to make a skirt. Now I am having fun looking for shoes, bracelets and a clutch. (I got the shoes...bright yellow patent leather...love them!)
So, what do you think? Should I get a dress form and make it a hobby, or is it a one time thing? Who knows, but it was a fun project!
