Soooo... after much hard labor and no little sweat... I have made my dress! :D all that is left to do, is to add tighter straps underneath the tulle straps to ensure it stays in place ;) and tack the tulle down right at the edge of the zipper to hide it :) Right now is just a sneak peek... when I get it totally finished, you will see pictures of me in it!
By the way, my camera is lying... the dress is pink, NOT orange! lol well its not really pink pink, but its more of a red than a yellow, shall we say? lol
All told, I would say the dress, if I had worked on it without stop, took me..... 8 hours? I really am not sure, but it was a fast project. You think not, but that's because I didn't work on it for very long at a time! So I am totally excited for the ball! I can't wait (IT'S NEXT MONTH!) lol
