My school was having a small prom and I was nominated for Prom Queen. (I didn't win though; no worries)
I wanted to make my own dress because I knew most girls would be buying them from the few dressy shops in Barbados (where I live).
My mom had just bought a Lutterloh Golden Rule Clothing Pattern kit, and using my measurements, we used them to make my dress!
It's technically a top, a skirt and a petticoat that has the can can material on it. It's made of polyester, and the pink and black waist part is actually one of my mom's work scarves! (It was pinned on)
Please excuse my facial expression, but i hope you like my dress! (The top is a little poofy in the pictures, but once it's pulled down, it's smoother)
I was originally going to decorate it with silver sequins and fabric paint, but I'm really happy with the results. I'll be sure to break it out to wear it somewhere again! Thanks a lot to my mom who helped so much with it
