North American International Auto Show 2010 Charity Preview Dress

Here it is, the bodice of my dress!  It's finally starting to form into something tangible.  I started the skirt as well today, but it wasn't enough to post a picture.  I am so excited to go, I have never been.  It's quite the A-lister event from what I hear.  At least I will have a dress unlike anyone else's, LOL.

The pattern for this bodice was quite a challenge, as I am I fairly petite.  I had to really tweak the upper part to make it look proper on my body.  I have also added some "boob-age" to make it look better on me.  Look for more pictures soon!


  1. I love the color of the fabric .. its something different from the mundane black or red and yet still elegant.

    Can't wait to see it finished.

    What is the black lace for btw?

  2. I demand an updated pic!


    Its going to look fabulous on you!

    PS - Stop being a free thinker and become my minion hahaha

  3. VP- There's your updated pic in the post above! Hmm... Should I report you for making a comment such as that? Or should I enquire what you would make me do if I became your minion? LOL
