Keren asked us to buy a black dress to wear, preferably one from Davids Bridal. I went right onto Ebay and found this dress for $20. When I received it however, it was different than what I thought it would be. In the pic on Ebay, it was on a hanger, so I thought the top went further down and I couldn’t tell that it had a train. Once I tried it on, I liked the fit, but the train had to go. I pulled it up in the middle and just tacked it into place to create a bustle looking style.
I made the bolero/shrug (whatever you want to call it). I used a t-shirt to create the jacket part, then used this tutorial to figure out how to do the ruffle part. I was very inspired by Bonzie (her creations are amazing!!!!!). One day, I will buy some of her stuff….
All three of us together
PS: I did my own hair using Bumpits (they work!). I bought mine on Ebay, but you can buy a set of three at Walgreens for only $10 if you want to try them. I unfortunately saw this good deal after I purchased mine.
