After watching the new version of Cinderella, I wanted to make a version of the dress just for fun. Knowing how expensive material is, I knew that would be an improbability. I just totally fell in love with the fashion from that movie. It wasn’t long after watching the movie that I walked into a local thrift store and saw this blue beauty hanging in the prom section. I immediately made a dive for it and it ended up being half off! I was so stoked! The thing was huge and my mom would often joke that it needed it’s own zipcode.
It sat in storage except for a few times when I took it out to try it on again. It was too big, strapless, and I even contemplated taking up the waist. I just never got around to it until a friend from work was throwing a prom themed birthday party. I instantly knew now was my chance to wear it. I pulled it out and proceeded to alter it, take it in and add some details to it. The day of the party, I did my makeup in a very glowy, sparkly fashion and put on the dress. My dream of being a princess for a day came true.
It was such a blast to finally be able to wear the beautiful blue gown. I hope to be able to wear it again for special events and have even toyed with the idea of wearing it to a children’s hospital. That would be so much fun!
Have you ever wanted to go all out with a gown? Who would you want to dress up as?
