Party dress for my friend's wedding

I made a dress for myself to wear to my friend's wedding the other day. I knew about the wedding wayyy ahead of time, but I did not make it until one week before the wedding, because I wasn't sure how much my belly was going to grow and how much weight I was going to gain. Although I made the dress a week before the weeding, I was a bit nervous whether I can fit in it comfortably.

I had a general idea for what I wanted in the dress - I wanted cinched waist (rather right under bust line) and I-line skirt to show off the bump:) I love how the dress came out, and I really loved wearing it! The only thing I would change, is to make the dress with a fabric with some stretch - I don't know why I didn't think of it while I was making it, but it would have been so much more comfortable to wear, and eat during the wedding had I made it with stretch fabric! I picked Satin, which has no stretch, I don't know why. I do love the deep navy blue color though.

I got the necklace from forever 21, and vintage clutch from a thrift shop in Philly (only $5!). I don't remember where the pumps came from, since I've had them for so long.


Wedding was a lot of fun. Beautiful bride, great food, sunny weather..it was almost like a high school reunion with many of my friends from the same high school:)
