I know you've gotta tons of this and you definitly deserve it but that is gorgeous.  My sister is going to her prom this year I think I'll try to make one for her.  I wanted to make one for me but when would I wear it?  I'm in college.  I know she had a hell of a time finding a dress last year.  That's just too awesome, well done.

I love this dress, I would pay for a dress like that

But I was thinking...

One could make the same type of dress but make the ribons more vertical...cause I'm a bit wider then you and and horizontal just don't work for me...and I would also have it easier with the whole dart chanching angles thingis...

Also...there are these tutorial on how to make your own try on doll thingi, if one made one of those and then put the dress on the doll thingi, then it would be easier to attach the ribbons since the doll would be the same size as yourself...

anyroad..I love that dress

Personally, I can see doing the same things as a tube top or leave it the same, wear jeans under it and pointie black heels and a little green beaded bag and you'd be all set for a night of clubbin!

*first post*  Smiley

I'm a HS junior this year.....so we have our prom, of course....I'm not the greatest seamstress ever, but do you think someone with little experience sewing could pull this dress off? I'm thinking pre-bought dress (short and strapless, or short halter?  Shocked) then putting on the ribbons myself.

Green isn't really my color but I adore the green/ivory/gold combination, it's lovely!  Grin If I did something like this I might go for rose/gold, or turquoise/silver...

Thanks for the idea - the dress looks fabulous on you, great with your skin tone! Smiley

I think this MIGHT work, but you'd have to be careful about the ends of the ribbons. On this incredibly awesome dress (  Smiley ) Sakijane attached the ribbons and THEN added the back zipper. If you bought a dress, the zipper would already be there, so you'd have to take it off, add the ribbons, and then re-sew-on the zipper, or the ends of the zipper wouldn't be caught on the inside of the dress. You could just fold them under and try to cover teh raw ends, but that could be tricky...

Of course, I'm guessing here, since I haven't actually made anything like this!

I couldn't pull it off as a dress --- I just don't have the figure for it --- but I love the idea of wearing it with jeans and heels. Spiffilicious!
