Right after our Systems block, me and J decided to make a trip down to Happy Valley for the AACF end of the semester banquet. The banquet was semi-formal, so I decided to assemble a dress for it since 1. med school = negative income 😦 2. I didn’t want to rewear a banquet dress and 3. I wanted to see what would happen. This is fabric I found on clearance in LA–only ~$2 in total!! 😀
|from L to R: main/base piece, one shoulder piece, middle piece|
Btw, LA’s fashion district is AWESOME for finding unique and gorgeous fabrics! no wonder hollywood gets so many amazing costumes!
|just one of the MANY shops FULL of fabric in the district|
Due to a physiology final, I did not get to sew the dress as initially planned, but I did bring safety pins. And I really didn’t want to buy a dress. So, after much experimentation, pinning, tucking, and wrapping…
the finished product:
|with M at banquet!|
Fabric was a bit wrinkly, but i’m pretty happy with the result 🙂
Thanks to J for helping me with the safety-pinning ;D banquet was super fun, and it was so great seeing everyone again <3!
