Again, thanks for all the comments! I got sidetracked in sewing Christmas gifts (which still aren't done
) 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!
will be patient and looking forward to a tut, and most of all, to see the final pic of your prom dress
It will all come, in good time.
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!
