Added May 10, 2011
So a friend of mine was having her birthday party and I didn’t want to spend to buy a new dress, so I decided to make one myself.
I made separate pieces of clothing. A sweetheart corset and 2 skirts. The blue skirt was from a previous project of mine. I converted it from a dress to a skirt because it was too short for my liking.
I like how it’s just separate pieces because I can mix and match them with anything.
I also made a little rosette (that doesn’t really look like one though lol) for something to decorate my head.
I didn’t really pay attention to the fabrics. Cotton maybe? lol
