So. My project for the last week was whipping up a dress to wear to my FIRST ever homecoming dance. (Yes, first. Are you shocked? It's cuz I'm a unsocialized homeschooler. ) My sweet boyfriend got me a guest pass and took me to his school's homecoming... I was shocked/delighted/impressed/unimpressed with the dance all at once. :) We went to a delicious place for dinner called True Food Kitchen. We had an awesomely hillarious waiter, tried some vegetables I've never seen or heard of before, and shared a "suprise" entree because we couldn't decide what to order. The actual homecoming dance was a little overwhelming (and maybe a little disgusting, there's my sheltered homeschoolerness coming through) but still really fun.
And my dress was a sucess! I'm proud of how it turned out. I was going for a fitted sweetheart bodice with a slouchy chiffon overlay. Then I did some Navajo-esque beading around the neckline (my first time doing beading. I'm pleased). It was comfy and long enough that I wasn't constantly worried about flashing people on the dance floor. I'll hopefully get some good use out of this dress!
Got a fabulous suprise haul of something special... I'll do a post on it soon. Yay.
