Dresses, dresses, and more dresses!

I am now fnally able to update due to the fact that I actually have pictures! Since there is so much, I shall start from the very beginning. I first attended The Bonnie Blue Ball which was a civil war theme. My dress was lovely and borrowed from a dear friend.

After that, I attended the Harvest Dance in November. It was lovely and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. My dress I made myself and finished as we were walking out the door for the ball. lol. Slightly stressful ;) but im so glad I finished it!
Brooke and I:
Emily and I (both in stripes! her dress inspired me to make mine):
Collin and I:

So there you have it. Now for the ball to be! I teach swing dancing (which i enjoy greatly) and I am right now in the middle of planning a ball of my very own. It will be called "Swingin' In The Rain". Here is the dress pattern I will be making:
It Vogue's pattern (V2902)
This is a color very similar to what I am going to use. Although the fabric I am actually looking at has more gray in it.
I will also be adding a large sash for around my waist and it will tie into a big wonderful bow in the back! I havent decided if I want this bow to be the same color as the dress or black. Black is what I will be using for the hem and the straps.
So hopefully pictures will be up soon of the finished product! I am going to make a mock-up this weekend to see what changes and alterations need to be made. I might upload some pics of that.

Until another day.....
