Lefty & Fifty-six

It started with...

..this picture, from an etsy clothing store...
the price tag for this dress was $188.00

Fourth daughter, Dallas had been asked to go the the
High School Valentines dance.
Her first real date after turning 16.

I decided that this was a dress that I could
make for Dallas and off we went to the fabric store and to forever 21
(that's where we bought the $7.00 top)
The total amount spent on 10 yds. of tulle and notions= $50.00

Dallas has "allowed" me to blog about this.
I couldn't upload any more pictures that were taken that night.
(her date was a fine young man named John).

These are the picture's she selected I use on this blog post.

She is so darling and loved the dress!
..on to the next couture fashion statement!

Way to go, making it for 1/3 of the price! That's so awesome, and she looks so good in it! :)
