I'm pretty sure i posted on this thread last year, but whatever I'm back! Last year i got a dress at Goodwill for $25 and boy it was a BEAUTY. This year i made my dress from a pattern. It's simplicity #4272 and i did a combination of view B and C and a little altering to make my dress! It's a Jessica McClinock pattern and the fabric does a gradient from aqua blue to dark aqua blue! I'M PRETTY MUCH IN LOVE! the lining is gold and there's a little matching gold button (i made it myself) to match!
The pattern called for boning, but I didn't put that crap in because last year i had boning in my dress, and when i would sit down i had to stop breathing. and i almost burst out of my dress after i ate dinner, so i figured i'd give myself a little wiggle room this year.
Prom should be a blast, and I'm so excited because i made everything myself! I don't care if everyone else's dresses are more awesome than mine. I'm just excited to go in something that I made for MYSELF! These pictures kind of blow. I tried and i failed. Maybe i'll take better ones later.
I also made a matching clutch using this tutorial, and i'm IN LOVE with it! (You can see pictures of it on that thread)
The boyfriend will be sporting a matching vest and tie made by yours truly!
