I made this for my friends hen weekend party June 2011 ^_^ Its my own personal version mixed between two dress types. Its very very shiny!

Roxann "Roxie" Hart is a fictional showgirl in various adaptations of the same story. She first appeared in the 1926 play Chicago written by reporter Maurine Dallas Watkins. Watkins was inspired by the real-life unrelated 1924 murder trials of Beulah Annan and Belva Gaertner, which she covered for the Chicago Tribune. Annan was the basis for Roxie. Both women were acquitted...

The dress is finished! I also have a new necklace, a shiny bag, shoes and hair clip to wear with the wig :) Ready for this weekend!

Simple but tricky (Posted 26th May 2011)

The material I am using for the dress is very tricky to sew! I am almost finished with it though, thanks to my mums assistance! Pics to follow in the next few days :)
