Keep it loose, keep it tight.

I'd wear the mockup as is, maybe just add some spaghetti straps and it's a cute top!

This is the start of a really flattering dress. I too like the buttons -- especially in contrast with the color of the shirt. Why not try one that way? Perhaps you could make it into a sundress with some cute embroidery!

I think that is a nice start and final piece will be weary beautiful, It is weary smart of you to try sawing first with old fabric (I never do that and regret it too meany times Smiley)
I like the top you came up with I'm thinking about making top like that for my self. Good lack.

Good start! It looks like the seams over the bust need to be more gradually graded (I highly recommend fitting your toile over the bra you're planning on wearing with the dress), and I think it'd be more flattering if you nipped in the waist a bit more.

Again, thanks for all the comments! I got sidetracked in sewing Christmas gifts (which still aren't done  Tongue) but every day I keep making adjustments to "the plan"... that is, how I will actually end up with the best prom dress ever... by prom.

Maybe a bit of a half circle skirt attached to it?
I still haven't decided on what to do for the skirt, but right now I'm thinking very full

I'd wear the mockup as is, maybe just add some spaghetti straps and it's a cute top!
Perhaps, with adjustments (that will be made anyway) like tightening it. I mean, I'm wearing a t-shirt under it in the pix and it's still a tad loose. I was trying to accomodate potential interfacing and lining, but unless I put on a pound or so before prom (NOT in the plan), the bodice needs to get slimmed down. Then maybe a top.

Perhaps you could make it into a sundress with some cute embroidery!
Sundresses can be born AFTER PROM!  Cheesy hahaha

It will all come, in good time. Wink

I like the top you came up with I'm thinking about making top like that for my self.
Great! If anyone makes something, I want to see!

im not good enough with sewing clothes to go without a pattern.
I usually use patterns for everything but purses and belts, but hey! You're your own walking talking dressform, why not make clothes to fit your body instead of a size? You can do it!

seams over the bust need to be more gradually graded ... it'd be more flattering if you nipped in the waist a bit more.
They do, and I will. This torso-thing was just to see if I could wrangle myself some princess seams without it looking like it's from another planet. Fit isn't perfect.... YET!

How is your dress coming along?  I am making mine, too, and I was just wondering!

Pff! My dress is coming along... not at all. School started up again and I found myself with zero to negative sewing time. I'm now considering using a pattern simply because I've never made a formal-style dress before and I know the fabric will probably be pricey so I don't want to screw it up. But I still plan to make my dress, either way. How is YOURS coming? Are you in the promalong?

Yeah, I'm in the promalong.  I actually haven't even started mine yet.  I have a sketch, but I might use a pattern and change it so that my dress will turn out how I want it to.
I'm going to make a practice dress, though, with $1/yard fabric, so that I can make sure the dress fits & looks just how I want it to.  I already have my practice fabric.  I'm going to scan my crappy sketch for the promalong, haha Smiley
