Yellow Graduation Dress

About: I am a 13 year old girl that loves sewing. That is all you need to know about me.

I was look around for THE perfect graduation dress, but then I decided, since I had the knowledge, time, and a sewing machine, I could easily make my own.

I bought the fabric at Joanns for only $2.99/yard!  I wish I had bought more...  I self-drafted the bodice, and made the skirt using a big rectangle.  I box-pleated around the rectangle until I got the width that I wanted.  I added my first invisible zipper. :)  The dress turned out better than what I expected it to be.

I was too eager to start making the dress that I forgot about this contest and I forgot to document the process of making it... so I started taking pictures of adding the zipper, but then got lazy and stopped.

sorry for the bad quality of pictures.  my camera wouldn't cooperate. & it was hard taking pictures the dress on my body.
