For those of you that know me,“ you know I didn’t sequin that dress (I could, but you know I like to keep my materials costs low.) My dress started out as an Indian Kameez. I found it at Savers during the half price sale. It was missing the pants and the scarf so I only paid $3.50 for it.
It was a quick fix once I took apart all the seams. The sleeves had to go. The dress was cut into a straight sheath. The neckline is the original, but the back was cut into a “v”. For some reason, the front hem had two inches of trim on it. I relocated that to the back. The back used to have some sequined appliques (and by some I mean three). Those were moved to a head piece. Once all of that was done“ I reattached the lining so the inside seams were concealed (Who wants to be scratched by sequins?)
A few hours before the event, Wendy cruised by in need of an outfit. Lucky for her, I had just gone to the Treasure City Thrift Quarter sale. The top was too small for me, but for a quarter it was coming home. The beading was practically flawless. Add a skirt and some heels and we were ready to go.
For this event I actually flat ironed my hair. It’s been ages since I have worn my hair like that. Mainly because it is time consuming. But everyone knows that this outfit needed a bob and a head piece. I will probably acquire a wig for future events. I am not too keen on the smell of burning hair.
