And my obsession with dresses continues…when the announcements at school informed me of the upcoming dance, I just knew I was going to be making my own dress. So at first it included a halter type thing and was white, then it was white but backless and with a bow in the back, and now its sparkly turquoise and strapless! Now to anyone out there contemplating the combination of busting a move and wearing a strapless dress, you are ill advised. Not to infer that there was a mishap of any sort, but after a “to left! take it back now y’all!”, there was no “hop one time”. I absolutely LOVE the red buttons (which matched my red nails!) which was my way of avoiding stretchy material + zipper complications. I am SOOO glad I finished it in time (exactly an hour before) because I saw about 4 girls wearing the same dress I had as a back-up!
