They laid down the law.

Egyptian Party Dress

I ain't no student of ancient culture.

This was something made in late 2007, I think. My aunt gave me this fabric when I was in the fourth grade and going through an Egypt-craze. I never really thought about making a dress with it until I had some excess gold lamé from a Halloween costume that I needed to use up.

An early interpretation of my all-time favorite silhouette, gathered short skirt with fitted sleeveless bodice.

Because it was a pretty early project, I don't have it anymore. It was semi-unwearable because I still had not recovered from my zipper-phobia and somehow managed instead to squeeze myself into it every time I wanted to wear it.
