This year I knew I wasn’t going to have a lot of time to decorate my own costumes, so I wanted to make something that would have maximum sparkle with minimum effort. I found this great sequin fabric in the Los Angeles Fashion District, and lined it with some acetate slinky. It had a lovely flow and fantastic sparkle. It was a bit of a pain to sew with these sequins because they were so big , but the result was totally worth it. Between sewing and stoning the dress it took me about 15-20 hours to complete. I think I liked my dress from last year a bit better (I loved the intricate beading and lacework on that dress), but I was happy with the way this dress turned out.

indication of how much it really sparkles.

So that was my dance dress! I was pretty happy with it, but my favorite dress that I made this year was my figure dress for nationals, which I will be showing off very soon. Stay tuned!
