30 minutes to shop at a Party Store
$100 budget ( I will only be spending $75)
Full day to sew
Muslin fabric can be used as a base for the dress
Glue Guns/ Spray Paint/ Staples all OK
Surprise Bonus Challenge ½ way through the day
For the outside of the garment I used plastic plates to create very dramatic and modern lines around the bust, filling in the free spaces with peacock-like tickets. The further and further progress I made the more and more the tickets looked like feathers, and aesthetic I really enjoy. For added flare I created a fringed effect on the bottom of the dress with napkins, tablecloth and a touch of streamer for some sparkle.
Do I have an idea for what kind of party a lady would wear this dress to? YES!
Think “Katy Perry goes to a holiday party at Liza Minnelli’s house” and the holiday is VALENTINE’s DAY!!
This dress was constructed out of Party Store items: tickets, plastic plates, balloons, napkins, streamers and HOT GLUE!!!
