A couple of weeks ago JoAnn had a 70% off sale and I picked up this fabric from ‘Style In An Instant’ (good thing it was on super sale, because $28.44 is a bit too expensive for my taste!)
This fabric is so simple! It’s already shirred and conveniently for me – in a long length. I just held it up around my body too see how much I needed and had them cut that. All you really have to do is sew it up the back and that’s it! I hemmed the bottom, added straps and put a slit in the back. At first I didn’t have a slit but realized I couldn’t actually walk! HAHA… Fixed that real quick and had a dress that took about two hours to make!
On a side (but very important) note, a week ago today was my 2nd wedding anniversary! I wore the dress out to dinner with my husband and we came back for a make shift photoshoot. Typically he’s the photographer but this time we had to use timed shots and in a dark-lit area, so ignore the weird lighting
And of course Guinness had to get in the shot! We tried to recreate a photo from our wedding day:
