Hey.. =]
I can't draw much, but I wanted to design my own prom dress (in the future...I'm thinking big! xD)

everyone says that the V formed on the back doesn't look great, so...yay or nay?
I love your design, but I'll warn you now, you will find yourself having problems with the gap between the fastening and skirt part. take a look at these dresses I designed and made using the same principle. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=187885.0 the last picture shows the backs. unless you drape the fabric like I did, you'll find it increadibly tricky to get in and out of the dress.. hey it may even be impossible :S if you need any help though, I can offer as much advise that I know..? I'm not sure if the back of your design is the same or similar as mine, but from looking at it, it looks like it, I just thought I'd warn you of the complications I personally encountered before another craftster makes the same mistakes I made Tongue

do you mean how the fabric's gonna attach around the back below the fastening thing?? cause I'm gonna attach a zipper above that, too...
or...
well should I just make it so there's NO V, but instead, draping? would it be easier? cause I want it somewhat fitted around that area..

I don't really understand how to do draping, though =[ so any help is fine =D

Yeah the bit under the fastening. it'd be easire to picture if you had a technical drawing to show where all the fastenings and stuff are. but basically, it looks as though you'd struggle either getting the dress over your shoulders, or over your bum.. well that's the problem I had Tongue If you want it fitted then I'd suggest adding a zip or buttons or something onto the skirt part too, just so you have that much more ease to get it on. Draping it like I did won't make the skirt part that fitted, and I guess would only really work with light fabric like I used, other wise it'd all bunch up..!
you don't want to spend hours making a beautiful dress then rip it when putting it on do you Smiley

Wow, Peitmer...those are so amazing!!  Good job with those!!!

Thanks Singingshan! I love your pieces too! They're right up my alley. Seeing them gave me the courage to post mine and made me think they might fit into this thread after all. The masking job is stellar! I use frisket once in a while, but it's never quite so clean. I tried it on a car crash drawing the other day and it worked for it's purpose, but not as neat and clean as I imagine masking jobs should be. It's okay though, I think I'm just a messy person  Grin

With your talent you COULD be a fashion designer.  have you thought about taking some classes?  I'm in college to become a theatrical costume designer, have you thought about doing that?   You could seriously.  I'd wear some of your works.

hee, it's funny because I actually do design clothes for a living, but I don't want to! My background is in fine arts and I'd rather paint. The line I design is children's and maybe if it was for older I'd be more excited about it, but right now I'd rather wear and draw the fabulous clothes and only occasionally make a piece or two when the mood strikes. I wouldn't mind wearing the octopus outfit though, that would be silly good fun! Thanks for the kind words, it really makes my day  Cheesy

I'm having this problem right now actually with how to make a dress that has a corset lace up but up high. I think I'm just gonna do a hidden zipper... that goes down to lower waist.

Haven't posted on here for a long time. Here is something I whipped up recently. Kind of boring but I likes it. Will have front and ofcourse, her date in complimenting outfit soon. Glad to see this Board is still going strong. Keep Doodling(sp?)!

Updated: added the front, sorry its so fuzzy but my scanner was only picking up the dark bits, so I had to lighten everything to get all the detail.

Actually, it isn't boring at all - I mean, in reality it would be an awesome dress! The simple looking ones are usually the best.

Another of mine. This time not just a doodle...
