First of all, thank you very much couturefreak! For both the pattern inspiration and all the help!

This dress was farrrr to rushed to be exception. Prom happened to be a few days after the final days of a show and the last projects of the term. So... it's not without flaws. But I AM in love with the color. If I could change anything, I'd leave the hem longer regardless of the dangerous-when-dancing aspect.

Cute, bragging, adorable boyfriend picture:



The pattern itself was tricky. And I feel like there was a mistake somewhere in there. But fun.

Any thoughts?

Merrrrrry crafting!  Grin
