I have been making my niece’s dress for the basketball homecoming.  The event was last Friday night and it went great.  What do you make for a basketball player who would rather be in her basketball warmups than a formal?
I chose to make a dress using the school colors (red, white & black) for a girl who was voted most school spirited.  She agreed with my color choice and my design and this is out it turned out:

 This dress is made with silk crepe with a white crumb catcher bodice and black skirt lined with a cling free lining (so glad to find it).  The corset is a separate piece also made from silk crepe with a nylon lining.  The red corset is ruched with 10 pieces of boning.  What we do for beauty. 
I can’t tell if she is happy because she is finished getting ready for the homecoming ceremony or that she scored 10 points in the game including a 3 pointer (it may have been two 3 pointers).
Anyway, thanks Kate for the honor of making your homecoming dress and for the free advertisement.  What a way to start my new sewing business!!

Have a great day.
