for prom last year i made two REAL dresses see fake one here---> http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=15736.0

here's the first..

back

detail

hand painted with puffpaint and brush..   i made this dress thinking it would look good on me since a) i'm not that curvy and b) the style looked amazing on the super-curvy marylin monroe.  but it really just made me look pregnant..    so instead of finishing it up with hems and paint and wearing it to prom, i left it half-finished and on the day of prom.. i created this:

I really, really am stunned by them. I agree with btyqnfrmmars, the yellow one is definately my favourite, because it has flowers  Grin
Did you use patterns for them? Either way, you have some talent there girl.

i love them! especially the yellow one- the fabric is gorgeous and flattering, and i love the artistically placed flowers. Why is the other dress not a "real" dress? It's triplesweet! (I'd wear it out)

the linked dress isn't "real" because i didn't actually wear it to prom..     i guess the first dress in this post should be considered un"real" too though..

Very cute! I'm olive toned so I don't really wear yellow, looks great on you though. Hmm, maybe the top one would work better if the v shape and waist were a little lower??

I'm mal proportioned and always looking for ideas of clothes to make that will fit. I end up with flour sack shapeless dresses or falling out somewhere. I really like the first dress, but I doubt it'd work on me.

They are all so beautiful! I absolutely love the ribbon one and the green pin-stripped one.

You have a lot of talent and I love seeing the stuff you have made on here. Keep up the good work! I look forward to seeing more things you have made.

Oh, the ribbon one is sweet and if you have another prom I would suggest wearing it. It's so damn cute and original!

I love the white/green Marilyn-esque dress.  it's gorgeous and I'll probably steal the idea.  I love the other dress you ended up making too.  I'd wanted to wear a yellow dress to my sr. prom, but I didn't get asked, so I didn't go.  Silly highschool boys.  Oh well, I had more fun that night anyway.  But, great job.

I absolutely ADORE your second dress.  Except I think that the ribbon hem would make me look short.  I'm going to try to do the same thing except make a ruffle hem, perhaps.  But for Homecoming or something instead.  Oh, question!  Which Simplicity tube dress pattern did you use?  I want to make sure I get the right one.

I can't see your pictures.   Sad  However, I looked at your ribbon dress and that is AMAZING!  It looks as if a designer made it!  I absolutely love it, but, as you said, there's not many places you could wear it.

In future, if pictures aren't working just PM the poster of them (poster?? Post-ee??), so not to clog up the boards.

Thanks,
