Hello, fellow denizens of Craftster!
So...prom is coming up in a few weeks. I was looking around on the Internet for a dress, when I came across this beauty
, only to find that it would set me back about 400. DOLLARS. !!! [insert horror movie scream here]
I figured that I might be able to make a dress that looks similar to that, since I've had a bit of experience with sewing (t-shirt recons, Halloween costumes, the works). I have a couple yards of white chiffon lying around that I could use to make the dress, but I have a bunch of questions that (hopefully!) you guys might be able to answer?
- Is there any way to paint dye onto the chiffon? I've painted chiffon with acrylic before, but it's always ended up all wrinkly and stiff.
- Would it make sense to use this pattern
? (silly question, I know, but...)
- I'm guessing that there's boning in the dress - is using boning hard for someone who's never used it before?
And most importantly...
- Is this even possible??
