My END OF SCHOOL FOREVER ball is coming up, and I have to make* a dress (I'm not buying, I don't want to take the risk of turning up in the same dress as someone else). I decided on a 50s style dress, to be made with a Butterick pattern. It will be pale pink with a layer of black lace over the top, based on a dress I found in a vintage shop in Covent Garden. The dress Anne Hathaway wore to the Met Gala has an identical bodice, but a much longer skirt.
But then I was messing around on the computer, googling dresses for inspiration and I saw THIS DRESS.
Emma Watson in Ossie Clark at the most recent Harry Potter premiere. I had totally forgotten about how gorgeous is. All my plans for my prom dress went out the window. THEN I saw the price. And my little ball gown plans were back on. BUT I am going to a wedding soon (holiday pending), so I might make* one.
*By "make", I mean, enlist Mama E's help.
