You know those times when you get invited to a formal function with 5 hours to spare and all the shops are shut and you're stony broke anyway but the FATE OF THE FREE WORLD depends on you looking fabulous?
(What? It could happen!)
Well I like to be prepared for just such occasions and yesterday I was wondering to myself if it was possible to make a passable evening/cocktail dress from dollar store stuff. Turns out the answer is "Yup? Kind of?"
The dollar store stuff in question here is a $2 table cloth, Found lurking in my stash, that I had intended to make into a superhero cape for my bear. The pattern is self drafted and it took all of about two hours to whip up. The on/detail shots are over at my blog.
So, huzzah for Le Boutique Dollaire, making the world safe for puppies and Martinis - shaken not stirred - once again.
