I envisioned a puffy, party dress and had my seamstress cut the bottom portion in an A-line fashion --similar to the original cut of the dress. Sadly, it didn't look as great as I envisioned.
So, for round #2 I decided to go with a pencil style for the bottom of the skirt, and it was a winner! See the new, winning dress below.

This past weekend I was invited to attended a local charity gala and the attire was "black tie." Welcome my friend Jonathan to the blog in his tux. I'm pumped about this newly, re-worked dress!
Happy Halloween! For last minute costume ideas, check out some idea inspiration.
