As those that follow this blog know ... I went back to collage ... It is going great crazy busy.  Doing  lots of costuming in my job at the costume shop.  Did the Wizard of Oz Will post some of that later and some on Major Barbra  and  and An Ideal Husband.  Working on Trail of Dreams and Carry on Mr. Bowditch ... and lastly The King and I.  So yes working on all that and 18 credit hours and 20 hours a week at work so yes trying to post just not succeeding.  Still wife and mom so life is busing out of its seams everywhere.
But my daughter went to homecoming a few times in the last few weeks and I wanted to show one of her dresses.  We used the dress in the last post.  So you can see its transformation.  It got re-worked several times before we were finished with it.
So the first thing we did was cut off 3.5 inches off of the dress to make it able to be worn without heels.  As my daughter's date was almost the same height as she is, she didn't want to be taller by wearing heels.
     Originally we were going to make the dress have silver and turquoise accents. The first go round we added turquoise.
 Added white bows but my daughter hated them, so they quickly got removed.
  The silver fringe my daughter loved and it made it to the final piece.  Originally the beads that were blue were free form ... when they got switched to red I put them in an organized pattern.
Later we added snowflakes and bows but those made it look to Christmas like to my daughter so those did not last. 
Then the date found a shirt he liked but it didn't match what we had done so we reworked the dress again but with red, white, black, and silver.  Added a black bow to the hip as a detail to help explain the gathering of the dress.
As always we made a beaded hair piece for my daughter and a beaded boutonnière for the young man.
