I think completely and totally YES! It is fine!! With the economy looking the way it does (which it is picking up... a tad) ((knock on wood) why would you spend anywhere from 400 to 1200 dollars on "party" outfits every year?? SO lets get resourceful! I am NOT going to buy one new party dress this year... Lets see if I can make it! I'll keep you posted. AND yes Momma, I returning my New Lilly party dress.. :( I'm sad to see it go... but do I REALLY need another party dress???
