Whew! Things are getting crazy/exciting with ! We’ve passed the point where everyone is mad at each other (this happens with every show), and the show has really come together! :) I can honestly say I’m really proud of this production, and everyone’s extremely hard work! :)
Anywho…Despite working on costumes every day, I still have to clothe myself too!
This is an old bridesmaid dress that a friend passed on to me. It’s a pretty color, and the cut is actually really cute. :) But, there are still a couple of problems. First off, it looks like a bridesmaid dress. Which isn’t really appropriate outside of a wedding! Next (and this is a big one), I don’t have the boobage to hold the top of this dress up! :/
Not to worry! This is going to be a two birds one stone refashion!
I got to thinking. What do bridesmaids dresses not have? Answering this question would help me make this dress work for everyday wear. :) My answer came to me right away. Prints. Most bridesmaid dresses are just solid colors. But how do I add a print to this frock? And what about the whole covering my chest thing?
I dug through my scrap drawer (which was under a pile of boxes in the garage) and got to cutting…
Then I got to sewing…
I added a fun brooch, and now my I’m ready to rock out with my frock out! ;)
