Green Green Green and Silver

When I got started on the skirt of this dress, I realized it’s going to be super green. But what can I do? Nothing, because I don’t know what to do or what changes I should make. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t dislike or hate it, I’m actually loving the color green this season. Yesterday night at around 11pm, after I cut my bangs or fringe, colored my roots, and watched random videos on YouTube, I decided to sew. I know right, at 11pm when I have work the next morning. It’s okay though because I don’t start heading out til 10am. I’m not done with the dress but, decided to quickly attach the bottom to the top to see how it’ll look like. I have to say, I don’t think I’ve used so much fabric on a dress before. If I have, I don’t remember. I bought 5 yards of the plain green and it doesn’t look like I have more than a yard and a half left. I think my sister bought me four yards of the Hmong green and silver fabric and no more than a half of a yard is left. It is because I cut one of the panels wrong so that was maybe a waste of a yard or so.

This dress reminds me of a princess dress (because of the side panels or whatever it’s called) so I think I’ll name it the Princess Dress. Since it’s so green, the first thing I thought of was Green Lady (Bridesmaid in Hmong). So, if you’re having a Hmong American wedding, this will be the perfect (literal) bridesmaid dress. Or if you’re attending an event (around this time would be Prom!) and love green as much as I do, this is the dress!
