My funk is over, I suppose. A long time ago, I came across a picture of this dress (also very similar to this one from Shabby Apple) and really wanted it. But alas, it was $450. (I probably should have expected that since Lauren Conrad was seen wearing it. I'm still not quite sure who she is, but apparently she's famous.) I, however, am not famous so I decided to save some money and make my own.
It turned out just a little shorter than I had wanted (but there's a large hem that I can easily take out) and the original sleeves were way too poofy and had to be altered, but other than that I am pretty happy with the final product. Unfortunately, I do not have any pictures (yet) but tomorrow I post some.
