These are adorable. How big are they?

Ah! Neat. I like how you layered it there on the side.
Will your dress be similiar to this or?
No, although if I run short on time I might be making a skirt to go with this and use it instead. *sweats*


The dress itself is going to be made out of a combination of these rings and black neoprene (it stretches!), and a very different weave. No big holes like that one, although I'll still have to wear something underneath.   Wink  If I have the time, it might be floor length, but my guess is that it'll be a pretty short dress. I'll post pictures when I finish. n___n

I've been working on a chainmaille dress for my prom this spring, but put that project aside for a few weeks while my new rings came in. In the meantime, I searched online for inspiration, and made a shirt!

I used aluminum rings, 1/4", 18g. Very lightweight.

Sorry for the crappy cell phone shots.

For the shirt that inspired me, clicky.

As you can see, I didn't do exactly the same thing.

I tend to look to the internet for inspiration, and then change it as I go along. I never get quite what I start out trying to make, but I don't mind!  Cheesy

Ok. This is what I want to do.


That's Judy Garland in one of her movies, "Girl Crazy". This is the only picture that I found online, and it is very cool when she is dancing in it because it is very flowy. I do know that it is of a creme underskirt with a dark tulle type netting onver the top. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do with the black swirlies on the front?
That's a gorgeous dress... <3

Kind of, but since I'm making it out of rubber and aluminum it should be quite light compared to, say, steel rings.
Hmm... chain maille would make for an interesting prom gown. That'd be a really hot look.
I'm sure hoping so.

I haven't decided yet whether it will be short-ish or full length with a slit. I guess it really depends on how much time I waste making it.  >__<


oh my god.. if you make it you HAVE to put a train on it.. and you need to see Chronicles of Narnia. In the battle scene, Jadis wears a chain mail dress, and it's amazing.
Yeah, I saw! That was so cool. It was... just... wow. I don't think I have the patience to make something that big. I mean, not only is she tall, but the dress is FLOWY. I don't really intend mine to be flowy.

I'm making my prom dress for this year out of chain maille.  Originally I was planning to lace up the sides so I wouldn't need plyers to get in and out of it, but I bought some stretchy rings that will help quite a bit. n__n

oh man. i can imagine how hott a chain maille dress would be, but wouldnt be like.....heavy?
