The College was looking for alumni to present on what they have been doing since graduation.
I was nominated by my BFF Chris over at www.warcrywod.com to give a speech on the Emergence of DIY.
I kind of felt like an octopus in this. The slits were too high for this to have been a dress...
Ruffles+short person+ heavy material= giant cupcake
So, I decided to use the lining material instead of the (super) shiny outer material.
I used newspaper to make a pattern and see how large my ruffles needed to be.
(I am TERRIFIED of public speaking!)
