1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Should I keep my prom dress? Help me out guys! on: April 22, 2008 02:38:37 PM
Helllllllo craftsters!

I decided to make my senior prom dress this year, because there are just too many tacky and overpriced dresses out there.

I decided to go with a Grecian-inspired dress, using this silky gold/sand colored jersey that I bought at an estate sale a few years back. I made it in a couple of hours, (the draping took up most of the time) but I'm not sure whether I should keep this dress, or succumb to the endless onslaught of mainstream prom attire and purchase a dress. Although I'm relatively pleased with it, what do you oh-so-knowledgeable craftsters think?

I really appreciate any input from you guys Smiley
Thanks so much for looking!



2  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Draped dress help? on: March 30, 2008 07:12:46 PM
Hello all! I'm currently working on my prom dress, and I was wondering if anyone knew how it would be possible for me (using silk jersey) to achieve a draped skirt such as this:

I'm going to be sewing the skirt onto a separate bodice portion, so it won't be attached like in the photo. I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to get the fabric to drape that way Sad I would LOVE any help from anyone!

Thank you guys!

And knowing how to make it floor length on the bias would make you AMAZING

The last one is absolutely gorgeous! I've made an infinity dress as well, but I can't wrap my head around how you got yours to look like that! How did you do it?

Hi again,

I was wondering.. if I sew the side seams a little further in (making it more narrow), do you think I would be able to get a shape like in the drawing?

Hello fellow craftsters! I have a question for all of you brilliant people.
I am taking it upon myself to make my prom dress this year, as there are too many gaudy, overpriced, and simply hideous dresses out there. I've already made a test dress, just to make sure about fit and overall design. However, I ran into difficulty when I came to the skirt part of the dress.



I want the skirt to look like the one pictured above, except slightly more tapered like in the drawing.

I can't figure out how to get the fabric to drape around the legs, and how I would go about lining it. If anyone has any ideas/suggestions, I would love to hear them!

Thank you so much guys!  Smiley

The color and cut of the dress are both really flattering on you, great job!  Smiley
