The Penguin Suit Pursuit

With my spring formal (instead of dance or prom, my school has banquets. A quick formula: Prom - Dancing = Banquet) right around the corner, I've been thinking about what kind of dress I want. I made my first dress for my winter banquet and I think I'll continue the tradition with the upcoming spring formal (it's pretty cool to be known as the girl who makes her own dresses). I'll be getting fabric tomorrow and starting it on Thur., so to get inspired I made a quick collage about my idea ,just to get jazzed about it.

Yes, I decided to do a tuxedo inspired dress. I'm going to feel pretty snazzy when I ask him to get me a boutonneire* instead of a corsage. I couldn't find an exact example of the dress I want to make,but I have an image in my mind, but sadly the only type of drawing I'm capable is stick figures, so it'll have to stay up there for now. I'm thinking of pairing it with some red heels, but I'll have to wait and see.

*I've had this idea for a while: a boutonneire with a red rose and venus flytrap instead of baby's breath. very jack skellington. I think I'll have to try and experiment with that idea.
