Hi there! Remember me?! It’s been awhile since my last post but I haven’t forgotten about you my dearest readers! I have been busy creating, but I haven’t been busy posting.
At the end of July our friend threw a Harry Potter themed birthday party for her boyfriend (also our friend) and we hosted this party at our house. Since this was a Harry Potter party, obviously I needed a outfit to fit the theme.
I already had a Harry Potter shirt that would be perfect for the hot weather, but I did not have a bottom to go with it.
I found this dress? In the dress section of my thrift store. I really was not sure if this was an actual dress or skirt but I wanted it to be a skirt, so a skirt it shall be! The shirt I was planning on wearing was a dark blue like this skirt.
My shirt was also a blue and black tie dye and I wanted to make the skirt match.
After I got done tying up the skirt with rubber bands in preparation for the tie dye process it basically looking like a blue octopus.
I actually used my washer machine dye process for this, instead of squirting the dye onto the fabric and waiting like the normal tie dye process. I think it worked out very well, probably because I was only using 1 color to dye.
This was the end result!
Then I just needed to make the skirt fit like a skirt. I took in a little from one side. The other side of the skirt actually had a zipper, so I was able to make it pretty tight. The way the skirt fit made it a high waist skirt, which was very cool!
The top and bottom together! I was super happy with the way this turned out! I also like how the skirt had a little train at the back, made me feel very elegant!
Here are a few pictures of some of the decorations around the house…Only Harry Potter fans will know LOL
Our friend also made homemade wands for everyone and constructed a quiz to find out what house you belong to 🙂
There were also Butter Beer Jell-O Shots! Yum-o!
