Definatly enjoyed the converses.  They make me laugh.  A lot of people made that dress (I did, too), and it's beautiful!

Chucks rock my socks! They really do, I have orange ones. Definitely my fav sneakers ever.

Last year my friend's girlfriend dumped him right before his junior prom tickets went off sale, so I went with him. I ended up dumping him too (haha, the jerk!), but I still like the dress I wore. I designed it, and constructed it with the help of my mom.







^Most people would be saying "Oh... I'm so pale!" ...like that's a bad thing. I'm a redhead, if I weren't pale, it would just look weird. :-P

I made my dress for junior prom last year. I'm really proud of it because I designed it myself and I didn't use a pattern or anything. The material is cheap but nice polyester satin.



It took me about a week to make it. I know I should have given myself more time. I will this year. It was really fun to make, and the skirt was really fun to dance in because there's so much material in it and it was so light and billowy. The one thing I don't like about it is the back. I have a pretty unusually shaped back, so I should have spent more time on getting that to fit right. Well, I learned my lesson.

Darn, I'm so jealous of people who don't need patterns and their stuff comes out AMAZING!!  Grin
I really like the dress, not a lot of people (myself included) can pull off white.  Lovely.

that dress is amazing missamericanpie!!!!  Grin  i made my prom dress last year and thought it was too big of a hassle, therefore i wouldn't make my ball dress this year (junior prom, senior ball...yeah my school's a lil weird but w/e) and your dress has definitely made me think twice about that decision.  could you give us some more details about how you made it? like is there a zipper in the back? and if it's not too personal...what size top do you normally wear?  dresses like that may only look good on certain types of figure, and it's hard to tell from the pic (or maybe i'm just clueless :-p) relatively what size/build you are.  thank you so much!

Yes, there's a zipper in the back and a hook and eye thingy at the top.

As for my size, I usually wear mediums. Sometimes I buy smalls if I can trust that it won't shrink, but shrunken smalls don't fit me very well. Ha, I guess that's how I'd describe my shirt size. I'm usually an 8 in dress sizes. Sometimes 6. I guess I'm an in-between-er.

Socomfyhere, did you want a full description of the process? Let me know if you do. I'll try to explain how I did it.

And thanks, Marie Antoinette, I liked the colours on your dress too. Bold, contrasting colours don't look very good on me, but you looked great.

Miss American Pie: Did you use shirring elastic of is the top just gathered? Whatever you did, it looks fantastic. You must be very talented to make that without a pattern.

btw Is that pink piping around the waist? I love all the pink accents. They stop the dress having a wedding feel, and give it that sophisticated ball feel instead.
