Yep that’s right, this one is a fail.
Here was the inspiration photo.
Here was the dress I owned, that was very similar in shape.
I actually bought this dress years ago (‘09) for a Halloween costume. I was Jackie O.
I haven’t worn it much since. So I figured if I ruined it, which I was pretty sure was going to happen, it wouldn’t be the end of the world.
So after 6 different paint applications…here is where the dress ended up.
Up close it looks horrible. And even using fabric paint…it’s really stiff. I ran out of paint in the process, so my paint application was even thinner than the original inspiration photo.
I tried to style it two different ways. I actually did wear this out in public. First we went to church as a family, so I used a black cardigan….after church Jesse and I went out to eat and I tried to dress it down a little with a jean jacket.
I do have another idea up my sleeve for this dress…..stay tuned!
