Deconstruction

Ok so you all know i am a member of the Order of the Eastern Star, i am also a member of the Daughters of Isis.

And being in DOI i am required to wear formal long whites. So i got the bright idea to try to buy a wedding dress for my long whites, just as something different to wear for my long whites for DOI.

WWEEEELLLL i checked ebay for a dress where i would not be shelling out hundreds of dollars for a wedding dress i was not wearing to a wedding. so i found this dress size 22, no stains and not a bad price………… So i pay 40 bucks for the dress and i get it in the mail. It is a size 20 *i am a 22 or 24 depending on the dress* and it has SEVERAL stains on the dress…. so you know i am hotter than hell about this, but i digress. Since the dress has stains on the front of the dress *which i think i can get out* i figured i would deconstruct the dress. I started yesterday, i will take a picture when i get home and post it.

It has some nice lace on it so will salvage that, and the dress is made out of white peau de soie, which i love because its not shiny like satin. So we shall see what i can make out of this dress. I will keep you all updated.


Misr Temple/Court Ball 2007

The most advanced thing have made todate was a dress i made for Misr Ball. Being in DOI, you have to wear all white. I picked Vouge Pattern 2776 Vouge Pattern 2776, I LOVE this dress, i want to make another one in black, any whoo, i made the dress, but being a soild size 26 in patterns, and Vouge cuts small, i was not sure how to tackel this issue. So i choose a top from another pattern i had on hand. A Simplicty patter *i will post a pic of the pattern when i can find the cover sheet* FOUND IT WOOHOO lol i made the top from this pattern….

I ended up having to add about a 5″ panel in the skirt, and 2″ on each side of the top. I love the fabric, which is a very flowy polly that is close to the $33 a yard silk that i really wanted to use, but the kid is not ball’n like that.

Here is a pic of me before the ball in my dress

The caplett i loved this material and i want to make a couple more, for other events. I plan on finishing the dress to my satification before the next time i have to wear it. I need to adjust the top again, too loose at the bust and too snug on my midsection, plus i need to drop some weight which is a whole other blog lol, and the skirt is too big so i need to take some of the panel out and refinish the waist band. Also i will be adding some frog closures to the caplett and the skirt. I took the zipper out of the top. I dont like zippers in tops, yes i am odd that way lol.

Here are a couple more shots of me that night:
