I've been drooling over the movie promo shots of the pre-burned wedding dress! Sure, it looks nothing like the book description but it's a fabulous outfit and if I had some place to wear it (don't think I could make it to DragonCon and ComicCon is way too crowded for a ballgown) I'd be so tempted. Heck, I'm still tempted!
The scary thing is, I'm pretty sure I could make it for under $250, if I were willing to invest loads of time and effort into the process. And if I had some place to store it, away from cats and destructive toddlers... Is it wrong that I've already figured out how I'd do the rows of ruffles and trim on the skirt layers?
The only thing stopping me right now from going out and buying supplies is the possibility that the post-burned dress will be even more fabulous, and I'd hate to miss out on the chance to make THAT one instead!
