    Craftiness saves prom night!

    Maybe you folks remember when I recently found a prom dress on ebay. Well, guess what? The zipper broke a couple of hours before I had to go eat/go to prom.

    I was in shock. For once, my "innate crafting emergency skills" were paralyzed. My sister and mother, however, brainstormed and poked holes in the zipper. My sister then thread silky ribbon through it, used a bunch of safety pins, made a ribbony-sash, and voila, the dress looked better in the back than it did before.

    Of course, the dress wasn't as well-fitted before, so I had to adjust the top a lot.

    But still!
    Craftiness saves the day! I feel stupid because I didn't take any pictures of the back. Oh, well.

    that's a great crafty story, and a memorable one at that. i love that the dress ended up looking better AFTER the zipper broke.

    craftiness: practical AND makes prom dresses look better.

    super crafty! My mom made my prom dress. Instead of chiffon for the sleeves she used the same fabric as the stiff part of the dress...leading my arms to fall asleep whenever I was slow dancing...not so crafty.

    My friend had her mom rip the zipper out of her wedding dress and the photographer drove her to the tailor while taking photos...that's pretty crafty :)

    I'm glad the evening went well!
