Prom Dress (Before)

Prom is coming up again and this is actually a long story but I'm going to try and condense it :) (By the way I'm trying to eat a pancake right now and apparently I am really bad at multi-tasking cause I can't chew and type at the same time!) Anyyyyyyways, I got this dress for free but it is seriously pretty ugly. It's strapless but I was pretty sure no one would want to see it that way so it actually has something under it in this picture. My Mom is helping me fix it up. I feel like Cinderella except I'm pretty sure my ugly sister won't rip it apart right before I go to the ball :) Sooo my plans are to first make the neck higher and sew on straps so it doesn't fall off me :/ (I'm pretty sure my Mom will actually be doing all the parts that are to advanced for me, in other words, all of it). Then we are going to make a pink jacket and sash. In case you can't tell from the picture, the skirt is like a foot too long so Rebekah is going to help me runch it up. Last of all I'm going to make some black silk flowers to "hide" up in one of the runches....I think it is going to turn out really pretty! I'm also going to put up after pictures too....I'm so excited :) If you have any ideas spit them out!

That sounds so fun! I'm to the stage where I can't wait to be sixteen but I've got a while yet. I think it's like a year and 75 days or something. Oh well. You're definitely gonna have to post after pictures! It sounds like it'll be gorgeous!
