i call this a malissa, but it’s really not. i was trying to make the dress that andie wears in the devil wears prada. i think it turned out well for what it is. i just used an old bedsheet because i wanted to see if i could make the dress before i tried it on a good fabric. in the picture where the belt is on me, i have it tied in the bow tie fashion (and it took me about 15 minutes to figure out how to do that!). =] i can’t wait to do this again for real. although next time i’ll make the top smaller so it covers my bra.
green cotton bedsheet, brown cotton, buttons
the devil wears prada movie for the inspiration
