I needed a party dress for a Halloween party. And well, this is what happened.
That over lay is made from an awesome table cloth I found at the local k-mart, its a lace tablecloth with a skull pattern, I don’t really know how apparent it is in the picture, it is to me, but I also stared at it for like 5 hours. and then 4 more at the party.
I used a crushed velvet underlay. And then I used a table cloth for the overlay. Red satin scraps for the ribbon around the waist. The velvet was stretchy so I was able to forgo a closure.
