Ok. If I can pour myself into making a costume for our children's pastor, I can pour myself into making a dress for my daughter.
If those folks on, um, that reality show about designing clothes, can pull off something like this in 24 hours, I should be able to get something together for her.
Not to mention, should I fail, I have the hand-me-down dress as a backup ;)
This design challenge is to create a formal dress for a stick-straight twelve year old who wants to wear the dress with black shoes. You will not be able to get said twelve year old's opinion until the dress is well under construction, so choose carefully! She must wear the dress to a banquet that starts at 7 PM CST tomorrow. Make it work!
Here's the product of the shopping trip (just to clairfy - the pattern has been in my cabinet a while! It's just the one I chose to go with the fabric I bought):
It's now 12:02 PM on Thursday and I'm off!
