Modest Fashion Show!

Today I participated in a Modest Fashion Show at BYUI! Well...more like I made a dress and my pretty roommate wore it for me! :) We made a deal. If she wore it down the runway for me, she got to keep the dress. hahaha! 

Here it is! It is a completely original design. I did all the pattern work for it and everything! 

Lots of Tulle! And Floral! Yay!!!

Wardrobe Revamp Project!

So I have been working like crazy sauce for the Modest Fashion Show I will be participating in at BYU-I tomorrow! I designed a dress and did the pattern work and then sewed it up. :) It was so much work but so worth it! My roommate will be modeling it in the show and I'm so excited!! I'll be posting pictures of the dress and the show once it's over. :)

In other news I've decided that while I am home for the very long break between Spring and Winter semesters, I will be tackling a project. I am calling it my "Wardrobe Revamp" Project! Basically, I have about four LARGE bags of old clothes I couldn't bring myself to give away to DI that are just sitting in my room being sad and alone. During the break I decided that I would pick one item from my stash and Revamp it into something spectacular and new every day! This totals to about 163 days. (July 22nd to December 31st)

This is my goal! I hope you're looking forward to it! I actually was inspired by many of the 365 day challenges that some bloggers do. Mainly Jillian at Refashionista is my inspiration. She's kinda amazing! Sadly, I just don't have the time to do that while I'm in school soooo I will only be doing 163 days. hahaha!

Anyway, I'm gonna go study my butt off and not sleep for the next week or so for finals! See you soon!!!
