Over the weekend, my mom and sister came to visit me. (You know the story: they cleaned out my closet and then we did lots of shopping. This is what we do.)
Well, my sister had been working on a project for one of her fashion design classes for a couple of months, and once it was finished and graded, she altered it so it would fit me. (I tried it on a while back when she was working on the muslin, so she knew what needed to be done.)
And that's how I got this va-va-voom peplum party dress.
She just blows me away with her talent. I can barely sew straight lines.
So anyway. Now I have this gorgeous dress, and I have absolutely no occasions for which I can wear it. I don't know if it should be considered "formal" or "semi-formal," or whether it would be appropriate for a wedding (basically the only fancy events I ever attend). Or where else it would be appropriate to wear.
What do you think? Where would you wear a dress like this?
