Sewn : White Lace Senior Ball Dress

Sunday, May 15, 2011

I made a dress for my Senior Ball last night.



I designed and drafted the pattern so this dress was quite a project.


(It's the sketch on the far right P.S.)

I really like how it turned out though, despite the lace being really hard to work with at times.
For those who were wondering, this is the lace I was pumped to find in New York last month.



Ya pretty sure I need to marry a pilot or something, so he can fly me there whenever I need new fabric.



Me and my cute date.

Senior Ball was a total blast by the way. Josh may just be my favorite person ever. He was seriously so fun to go with and was such a gentlemen the entire night. Pretty sure I didn't touch a door handle once.



The group I was in was also really fun. None of you will probably ever read this but in the case that you do, you all rock!
(Yes I'm talking to you Marshall and Tayler.)



Thanks Josh for such a wonderfully incredible night!

  7. well will you just look at this?! how totally gorgeous you are Haylee, i absolutely love the dress you made and the way you styled your hair!!!! tremendous and stunning; the back detailing is darling. but girl, the marrying a pilot thing is questionable, i want you to have the best guy in all the land and my bro is a pilot so i can only speak of stories he's told me and they can be playa's sometimes ; )

    if you go for the silver bird flyers then okay but he better be a winner and not the Charlie Sheen kind either. baha! just looking out for you love, that's my 2 cents of the day.

    but now onto more swoons over this amazing night - Josh is such a cutie and has the debonair thing goin' on too. everyone looks beautiful, wish i could have been a fly on the wall and watched the fun first hand. thanks for sharing and have a great new week!!!! ♥
