dress: made by me, belt: thrifted, shoes: journey's, tights: walmart
For my final in pattern making last semester, I had to make and present a piece to be put in the school fashion show. I'm not one for the lime light. I HATE public attention. Being on a runway and having to strut my stuff was terrifying to me. But it was my grade on the line so I had to and I did. I got on and off of that runway as fast as possible. My family definitely made fun of me for that one. My parents came up to Washington for the show (and my 21st birthday!) and they just laughed at how fast I booked it off that stage. I'm just grateful it's over. This dress was kind of a pain in the butt... It was my first time working with leather and it was definitely a challenge and it was extremely hot... ignore the pit sweat please. My mom actually ended up putting in the zipper for me (thanks mom!). I put that baby in 4 times and it just wasn't working. It definitely had an attitude. But I'm so proud of the end project. It's my OWN pattern. I made it myself! I didn't buy it from Joann's. It was my hard work that made that pattern happen.
