sewing it up. again?

first I want to thank all my readers for their SUPER sweet comments:)! I really appreciate it!
second, please excuse the make-up-less, kinda ghostly face in the pics below!
So This was originally my prom dress but I started again with new fabric with my patterning teacher so I thought I'd make a semi dress out of my old one:) and my friend just so happened to ask me to the batallion ball at his private school! I actually liked how it turned out, I didn't use pattern so i just took a stab at it.

KINDA upset though because I had a big fight with my dad; So stupid & it's been a stressful day! Finished debate/ finance test gah; I also jogged for almost two hours around town coz my AH-MAZING friend agreed to train me so I can get more toned. Oh man it's SO hard to run outside. . . I think we ran over 10 km proud? Felt really good after that but now kinda down :(

anyways. . . tomorrow will be better!

Hmmm your dress is almost as amazing as these friends I am hearing about ;). But seriously, beautiful dress, I am sure you'll be the center of attention at semi with that smexy dress on. Have fun and keep up the training :)

OoooO. Nice dress. What did it look like before? any pictures? I really like the color. My prom dress was yellow too but not as bold as yours.

Kudos for jogging 2 hrs. I would never be able to do that...
