I wanna be a princess...who doesn't  Grin

Hehe...I thought of finding a pattern for  a "plain" satin dress, and then adding those details afterwards...But I don't really know about the "skirt"...it looks like: Satin, tulle, chiffon?


I'm just so in love with it... Grin!
I know I could make an easier one, but we don't go for "cocktail type dresses" here 'cause our prom is so much more formal, e.g. our parents participate, and we dance les lanciers (Think: the dance scene in Cinderella movie with Brandy)

So I'm definitely going for a petticoat too

Since I graduated last spring, no more proms for me.  But, this summer I plan to be in the Miss Southern Iowa Pagent.  I think it would be cool and give me a bit of an edge against my competition if I make my formal dress. What do you guys think?

....but, since I am a senior, my school makes us have a dress made for may procession/baccalaureate all out the same fabric for every one (this year is "celery" colored french linen. ugh, linen.) so being the crafty one i am, i shall be making mine!

i'm going for simplicity 4990: (the pink/floral style)
since i figure i am more likely to wear one of the pieces again after the events...and i'm all for wearing outfits more than once.

i have never worked with boning or any strapless tops, so this will be interesting.... i shall keep everyone updated!

okay so here's an update.

i got chosen to be the may crowner for my school in the occasion that i would be making the outift for, but the catch is...the may crowner doesnt have to make one, but just a white dress.

so i guess i won't be using that pattern....maybe if another event ever comes up...

You can also see the different colors there.
I like the the victorian coral(the first pink button), the vintage merlot (under the brown button), and the vintage black (under the black button)!!!

Wee! I went fabric shopping with my mom on Sunday and found the perfect fabric for my prom gown. Teal (blue interweaved with green) silk dupioni.  ::drools:: It also happens to be impossible to photograph.  Angry



I'm making Simplicity 5237, with a few alterations:


The bottom hem of the top dress will extend all the way down, over the tulle, and at the waist, there will be a pleated inset that looks some what cumberbun-ish (I saw something similar on a dress from Black Market White House).

Here's my sophmore prom dress made by my mother.  My date and I had this whole vampire thing going on.

Haha, I used the same pattern for my prom dress as well!

My stupid gloves kept slipping down, as you can see...grr!
Here's me and my guy.  I made his tie to match out of the same material for the back of my dress.

Boy, we're dorks. Grin
