I've decided that this year I want to make my OWN prom dress.. =)
I'm super excited.
I've made a few dresses before, but I used patterns.
But for this project (and for future use) I bought an adjustable dress form on eBay! WOOHOO!!!!
My inspiration for my dress came from this thread:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=15736.0
Here's my sketch:
What do you guys think?
I've decided to make the ribbons all solid, no patterns.
And I just might possibly make them all the same width. (I'll buy some wider ones just to try it out, but I like the idea them all being the same width, just different shades)
And I don't plan to completely cover the top with ribbon, a little white will be poking through.
I *might* put a couple layers of tulle underneath to make it a little poofy, but not overly poofy. My dress last year was very princess-y.. white pink and purple.. so i'm going completely opposite this year.
The pattern I have envisioned is just a circle skirt and two rectangles to make the tube top. Does that sound about right?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated =)
