I’m going to a wedding in New York on the first of September, and I’d like an awesome dress to wear, so I will be trying to make this dress in the next three months. It may not be doable, depending mainly on how dense I make the embroidery.
The picture is from Alabama Chanin, and it’s designer stuff. Just the little red bolero is $485, and the dress is upwards of $1600. They sell a kit, so if I had $289 to spend on a dress, I could get the material precut and pre-stenciled, or get the stencil alone for $59.
Being both poor and very frugal, I have purchased some second-hand fabric for about $6 and will attempt to do the rest myself.
