C'est fini!

Woohoo! The Promaballoona/Costume College Gala dress is done! I promised myself that I wasn't going to share any pictures of the dress once I got into the fashion fabric stage but I can't help myself!

I didn't end up buying any of the trims I posted....but I re-purposed a sparkly belt instead! It's an inch of sequin and beaded trim and it was almost long enough to go all the way around my hips. So I added a self fabric tie to bring the bow back into the design. Oh, it is so fun to wear that I just want to prance around the house in this gown but I have more stuff to sew for Costume College. The closer it gets, the more ideas I get so it's time to get sewing!


  1. Looks darling!
    I know what you mean- the more ideas I get the closer it gets...

  2. that sneak peek is TERRIFIC!!! i gotta step it up!

    1. Can't be out dressed at your own party! lol

  4. You are one speedy sewer indeed! Awesome work, dear gal, can't wait to see you modeling your gorgeous new creation.

  5. Oooh, roll on Promaballoona so we can see! I love the combination of deep blue and sparkles!

  6. I love that color. Lately I've just been madly in love with navy. Normally I cling to my beloved chocolate brown, but wow, that color is stunning!! Can't wait to see more pics!
